The Center is primarily involved with fundamental nanotechnology research in materials, devices and systems. By combining computational design with experimentation the Center's researchers are discovering novel pathways to assemble functional multiscale nanostructures with junctions and interfaces between structurally, dimensionally, and compositionally different nanoscale building blocks to create useful hierarchical material systems.
The NanoPower Research Labs at RIT are dedicated to the development of new materials and devices for power generation and storage for microelectronic components and micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS).
The mission of the Nanoscale Materials Technology program is to provide students a foundation in materials science, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and electronics. With strong supporting courses in Computer Aided Drafting, Vacuum Science and Technology, and Thin Film Deposition Techniques, students will be prepared for employment as highly qualified technicians in the emerging and highly technical semiconductor and superconductor manufacturing and research and development field.
CSEQuIN is focusing on studies and exploitation of spin effects in nanostructures in the following areas: inorganic semiconductors (quantum dots, nanoparticles), combinations of ferromagnetic metals and semiconductors, polymers, organics and biomolecules, and hybrids of these materials and structures.
The research objective of Prof. Hao Zeng's group is fundamental understanding of spin and magnetic properties in nanostructures. To achieve this goal, they are working on three broadly defined areas.1) Nanostructure synthesis/fabrication. The approaches include chemical synthesis, vapor phase growth and thin film deposition. 2) Device fabrication. We combine bottom-up self-assembly with top-down lithography (both optical and e-beam lithography) to fabricate charge transport devices. 3) Magnetism and spin dependent charge transport studies.
