Regulating Nanotechnologies in the EU and US is a collaborative research project involving researchers from LSE, Chatham House, Environmental Law Institute and The Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. Its goal is to investigate the regulatory challenges posed by nanotechnologies and to assess the effectiveness of existing approaches on both sides of the Atlantic.
Many new nanotechnology research fields require a high degree of precision in both observing and manipulating materials at the atomic level. The advanced nanorobotics technology needed to manipulate materials at the nanoscale is being developed in the new Sheffield NANOLAB.
The ETM group focuses on unique strengths and capabilities to conduct world leading research, benefiting from synergies between: microelectronics; materials research and design to simulate nanostructures and technology processes and devices; fabrication in two in-house class 100-1000 clean rooms; characterisation of materials, devices and circuits; research on emerging electronic technologies
Research activities in the group encompass a wide range of themes at the cutting-edge of nanoscale science and nanotechnology - principal interests lie in the synthesis and characterisation of new nanomaterials, such as nanodiamonds, silicon nanocrystals, gold nitride (AuN) and photon reactions on ice.
Wide range of nanoscience research
The group is working on Rotary Molecular Motors. In particular the Bacterial Flagellar Motor and F1-ATPase. The aim is to try and understand how these living machines work.
The course consists of three modules: The Wider Context of Nanotechnology; The Fundamental Science of Nanotechnology; Fundamental Characterisation for Nanotechnology.
The research carried out by the Centre covers two themes, nanoscale functional materials and devices and nanooptics and plasmonics.
Research includes nanoscale amterials such as nano polymers.
The Nanotechnology Centre for PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) Research is involved in the processing, characterisation and use of advanced nanostructural materials, including advanced nanostructural functional and decorative PVD coatings for applications in various industries such as: aerospace, automotive, textile, hydraulic, cutting tools.
