The mission of M-NiMBS is to harness nanoscale science and engineering for biological and medical applications, as well as to use bio-inspired nanostructures to develop new forms of materials, sensors and electronics.
'Bringing intelligence into micro-nano-systems' - The focus of this research group is integration of adaptive and machine learning techniques with micro-systems to achieve ultra-low power and robust operation.
The MOE lab focuses on inorganic and organic excitonic materials for solar energy production and utilization. They look to exploit oriented, crystalline, nanostructured and excitonic films through organic-inorganic and organic-organic interactions while studying fundamental relationships between structure and photophysical properties.
The Graduate Certificate in Nanotechnology recognizes advanced study of scientific, technological, and engineering topics in nanotechnology, including aspects of 1) characterization; 2) micro- to nano-scale fabrication and control; and 3) devices, systems and integration. The certificate also requires study of the societal and ethical implications of emerging technologies.
The minor in Nanoscale Science and Engineering (Nanotechnology) is deliberately designed to introduce students to the basic issues and overall scope of this field, encourage students to pursue interdisciplinary coursework outside their major, develop an understanding of the importance of flexibility in terms of careers, research, and education, and be flexible to allow for participation by students in diverse majors.
