Phonasum is a network of researchers and practitioners working in the field of photocatalysis from all around Europe. The main objective is to increase via a concerted European effort the fundamental knowledge of nanocrystalline photoactive materials and development of new products, which utilize self sterilizing and self cleaning photoactive materials in specific industrially relevant application fields such as self-cleaning and anti-microbial surfaces, water treatment, air purification and general hygienic applications.
PHOREMOST is the result of a decision to establish a Network of Excellence in the area of Nanophotonics and Molecular Photonics to address the near- and long term needs of photonic functional components.
This joint effort gathers a number of leading German research institutions from the Max Planck Society, the Helmholtz Society, and the Fraunhofer Society together with partners from Germany's Photonics industry. The PhoNa consortium conducts research on a broad spectrum of linear and nonlinear Photonic Nanomaterials, as e.g. metamaterials, photonic crystals, plasmonics, diffractive structures, and their application in fields such as biology, chemistry and material sciences.
This European consortium explores computing inside a single molecule using atomic scale technologies.
Quantum mechanics lies at the core of many of today's technologies as well as ongoing scientific discoveries and future innovations. The Pittsburgh Quantum Institute was established in 2012 to help unify and promote research in quantum science and engineering in the Pittsburgh area. PQI members have faculty appointments from Carnegie Mellon University, Duquesne University and the University of Pittsburgh in physics, chemistry and engineering disciplines. On this site you can find research profiles of PQI members, read about the latest research achievements, learn about PQI seminars and other events, and find connections to related centers in the Pittsburgh area.
EU-funded research project that aims to make plasmonics a key element in the future of the European photonics industry.

RADSAS (Rational Design and Characterization of Supramolecular Architectures on Surfaces) (Switzerland)
The RADSAS project aims at developing efficient strategies for parallel, two-dimensional molecular self-assembly on surfaces, which we consider an indispensable prerequisite for the technical realization of supra-molecular design and engineering.
RECEPTRONICS is a research project funded by the European Commission within the VIth Work Program under the Nanotechnologies and Nanosciences priority. The goal of this project is to develop low-cost, label-free biomolecular detectors/sentinels by integrating concepts and methods from bionanotechnology and micro-/nanoelectronics. More specifically, the project aims to design, fabricate, test and validate a biomorphic hybrid technology by which biological self-assembling structures are interfaced with advanced electronic circuits for signal detection, amplification and conditioning.
