The group's research deals with nanostructures and nanostructured materials. They seek to expand the science of how to synthesize these materials and engineer their fundamental properties; to create new technology to realize the related chemical, mechanical, and thermal assembly processes; and to pioneer applications which harness the unique properties of nanostructures at small and large scales.
The SSEL manages academic programs and conducts research on the theory, design, and fabrication of electronic, optoelectronic devices, circuits, and microsystems (MEMS), as well as on organic devices, novel characterization and metrology techniques and nanofabrication technology.
The MNF is one of the leading centers worldwide on micro electromechanical systems (MEMS) and microsystems. It provides facilities and processes for the integration of Si integrated circuits and MEMS with nanotechnology, with applications in biology, medical systems, chemistry, and environmental monitoring.
The nano Devices & Systems Laboratory (nDSL) at Wayne State University aims at understanding the fundamental science of one-dimensional systems and nano-structures and developing electronic device technologies at single molecular or nanometer scale.
