IMM is a nonprofit foundation formed in 1991 to conduct and support research on molecular systems engineering and molecular manufacturing (molecular nanotechnology, or MNT). IMM also promotes guidelines for research and development practices that will minimize risk from accidental misuse or from abuse of molecular nanotechnology.
The mission of the INAC is to: (1) invent new molecular devices, (2) develop techniques to assemble them into ultradense systems integrated with a silicon platform, (3) devise new system architectures that harness these heterogeneous technologies for NASA missions, and (4) train the next generation of scientists and engineers.
The JSC Carbon Nanotube Project is focused on developing bulk nanotube production, purification and application of Single-Wall Carbon Nanotubes. The goal of our project is to develop nanotube applications for use in human space exploration.
A research consortium whose goal is to develop the next class of semiconductor materials and devices. The consortium includes Purdue University, the University of Illinois, Pennsylvania State University, the University of Michigan, Argonne National Laboratory, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory.
ISN's charge is to pursue a long-range vision for how technology can make soldiers less vulnerable to enemy and environmental threats. The ultimate goal is to create a 21st century battlesuit that combines high-tech capabilities with light weight and comfort.
The central goals of the NCI funded MIT-Harvard CCNE are to rapidly translate recent advances in nanotechnology for use in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, and to develop the next generation of nanomaterials for this purpose.
