Three laboratories make up the center: the Nanomaterial Laboratory, Nanobiomedical Laboratory and Nanoelectronic Laboratory. They relate to research/development of new materials, biomedicine and light and display and energy respectively.
The three objectives for the center are 1) to promote and coordinate large-scale interdisciplinary research programs in nano-science and technology. 2) to plan and to co-ordinate cross-disciplinary undergraduate and postgraduate training in nano-science and technology. 3) to serve as a bridge between the university's nano-research and the industrial application in nanotechnology.
The main objective of this center is to educate hi-tech professionals demanded both in academic and industrial fields, which will consequently promote academic research in electronics and forward the development of IC industry.
With one of the best facilities and multidisciplinary expertise in nanoscience, nanotechnology and microsystems, the Center has about 120 dedicated doctoral research members with a broad spectrum of backgrounds from colleges of engineering, electrical and computer engineering, sciences, and medicine.
The group of Prof. Chen focuses on these areas: Nanofabrications and nano-scale lithography; Optoelectronic devices with nanostructures; Optical Thin Films; Nano-scale semiconductor processing technologies; Optoelectronic materials and nanomaterials; Antireflective coating technologies
