The Institute joins together electrooptics and nanotechnology faculty from the Universities of Louisville and Kentucky, and affiliated researchers from the Illinois Institute of Technology, China and Russia.
This program is comprised of three major components: arts and sciences, electrical engineering technology, and free electives. The electrical engineering technology component consists of core and concentration requirements in addition to electrical technology elective credits.
This facility is an open-access initiative in support of nano-scale devices, systems and materials research that encompasses a broad range of technologies and capabilities. The facility provides nanofabrication, analytical instrumentation, materials characterization and process-development laboratories for students, faculty and industrial researchers.
The research of the group interfaces with biomedical engineering, nanobiotechnology, electrochemistry, BioMEMS, biochemistry, nanomedicine, surface science, and materials science. The work done here looks ahead to the next generation of nanoelectrical components such as protein nanowires, DNA transistors as well as end use electronic devices such as Lab-on-Chip, biosensors and enzymatic biofuel cells.
The High-Performance Materials Institute at Florida State University is the pioneer in the process for manufacturing of carbon nanotube 'buckypapers'. The center has other research on-going in areas of nanotube systhesis, growth and nanocomposites.
INSI is an interdisciplinary initiative at Florida State University to foster a world-class program in the exciting emergent area of bio-nanoscience. The initiative builds on a solid foundation in bio-nanoscience at FSU that evolved from existing strengths in materials science, molecular and cell biology, chemical and biomedical engineering, chemistry and biochemistry, and physics.
This MURI project at Georgia Tech is focused on a revolutionary new paradigm for fabricating micro/nanodevices: the synergistic use of genetic engineering, biological replication, and shape-preserving chemical conversion to generate enormous numbers of identical Genetically-Engineered Micro/nanodevices (GEMs) with tailored 3-D shapes, fine (meso-to-nanoscale) features, and chemistries.
The Mason Nanotechnology Forum has developed a Graduate Certificate in Nanotechnology and Nanoscience to address the need for qualified professionals in these critical areas. The Mason NANO graduate certificate is composed of five courses (15 credit hours) focusing on two key areas of knowledge: (1) nanomaterials and nanostructures and their relation to bulk materials, and (2) methods for characterization and production of nanomaterials.
The Mason Nanotechnology Initiative opens a space for discussion and planning of activities related to nanoscience and nanotechnology within Mason. The efforts target the development of new academic programs within the university that contain a strong component of subjects in science, mathematics and engineering, which are fundamental to nanoscience and nanotechnology.
