BICAMN includes focus areas in 'Nanodevices' and in 'Nanomaterials' that explore the basic science of nanoscale magnetism and optics and the structural details of novel nanoparticles and nanoscale thin films.
The scientific community grouped under the Ilse Katz Center aims to develop excellent, innovative fundamental research in the field of nano-scaled materials, that will lead to the opening of new technological horizons.
Supported equally by the Russell Berrie Foundation, the Government of Israel through TELEM, and Technion, RBNI aims at positioning the Technion and the State of Israel at the forefront of global nanotechnology research and development.
The LNBD laboratory focuses on the development and study of new generation of nanomaterial-based devices, with an emphasis on developing new fabrication approaches and understanding the fundamental mechanisms of the structural assembly. the group uses both the bottom-up and top-down paradigms as the underlying approach for exploring new devices and applications in diverse areas. These include the interface between nanomaterial-based electronic nose devices and disease diagnosis and ecology monitoring, molecule-based (opto)electronic devices, electrical contacts to organic molecules, and electronic charge transport via organic molecules.
The following Technion academic units participate in this interdisciplinary program: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Biotechnology and Food Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Medicine, Materials Engineering and Bio-medical Engineering.
