Mackenzie Presbyterian University - Graphene and Nanomaterials Research Center (MackGraphe) (Brazil)
The mission of MackGraphe is to investigate properties of graphene and nanomaterials with an applied engineering thinking. The center aims to master processes in all stages of technology development, from the modeling of nanomaterials to their application, through synthesis, characterization and integration with other elements.
At the CNBP the team use the power of light to measure, seeking to understand the complex molecular processes that underpin the living body, as well as other dynamic biological systems. Their approaches and technologies encompass Discovery - of chemical, nanomaterial and fibre based light responsive tools - that Sense and that can also Image. Bringing these three core capability areas together, the Center scientists are driving the development of innovative new molecular sensing tools that have broad application across the biosciences, medical, agriculture, food and manufacturing sectors.
MAFIN aimed at developing a new magnetic recording media at prove-of-concept level for ultrahigh density magnetic storage applications, by using low-cost, environmentally friendly processes and both advanced and new nanotechnologies. The MAFIN project successfully ended in May 2009. Reserach on magnetic storage is continued within the TERAMAGSTOR project.
MAGMANet is an interdisciplinary Network of Excellence that focuses on the magnetic properties of molecular based systems. The consortium comprises 22 leading European players in the field from 8 EU states plus Romania and Switzerland. The entire range of expertise necessary for carrying out research in molecular magnetism is involved, from theoretical and solid state physics, to synthetic organic and inorganic chemistry.
Focused on Molecular Engineering and Devices
MANCEF globally supports the creation, exchange, and dissemination of knowledge vital to people, organizations, and governments interested in the commercialization of miniaturization technologies.
This European Nanotechnologies Project is funded by the European Commission Sixth Framework Programme, under priority 3: Nanotechnology and nanosciences, knowledge-based multifunctional materials and new production processes and devices (NMP). The first level objective of the project is to provide the manufacturing industry with an entirely new platform for manufacturing (i.e. even beyond micromanufacturing), by way of the high productivity, high resolution, direct, one step laser sintering process.
A 300-acre greenfield site designed to become the nanoelectronics manufacturing and R&D cluster for the state of New York.
Maryland NanoCenter has been established as a partnership among three University of Maryland colleges: The A. James Clark School of Engineering, the College of Computer, Math, and Physical Sciences (CMPS), and the College of Chemical and Life Sciences, with sustaining support from all three and the campus.
To meet the rapidly growing interest of students in nano, and to create the nano workforce of the future, Maryland NanoCenter offers an innovative undergraduate program, the Interdisciplinary Minor Program in Nanoscale Science and Technology, drawing faculty and courses from multiple departments of the A. James Clark School of Engineering, the College of Computer, Math, and Physical Sciences, and the College of Chemical and Life Sciences. The program is open to any student majoring in Engineering, Physics, or Chemistry.
The Nanotechnology Program at CMIR at Harvard University develops, optimizes and validates creative approaches to diagnosis and treatment of human disorders
Massey University - Bachelor of Engineering with Honours (Chemical and Nanotechnology) (New Zealand)
The degree starts with a foundation in mathematics and science and an introduction to technology and engineering. It then builds on these fundamentals to develop the basic skills of a chemical or process engineer and opens up to the ways of thinking of the nano-revolution. We keep the degree broad enough to equip graduates for a range of careers in New Zealand or overseas covering both biological and non-biological processes. There is an opportunity for individual specialisation and participation on the frontier of knowledge with the research project component.
As well as dealing with the novel properties of materials on the nanoscale, a key facet of the Nanoscience major is its interdisciplinary character including all of the fundamental sciences. Students will build on a foundation of maths, physics and chemistry before going on to study aspects of nanoscience itself, focussing on a choice from two options - either quantum nanoscience (with an emphasis on further physics and chemistry of modern nanomaterials) or bionanoscience (with an emphasis on biological macromolecules and nanostructures).
A major in Nanoscience as defined for the BSc degree plus a further 15 credits at the 300-level in an approved subject.
Massey University's Postgraduate Diploma in Science (Nanoscience) gives you the opportunity to join the pathway to in-depth research at a masters level. The programme consists of 90 credits of taught programmes and 30 credits of research.
The Materials Research Society is a not-for-profit organization which brings together scientists, engineers and research managers from industry, government, academia and research laboratories to share findings in the research and development of new materials of technological importance
Research on dynamics and self organization covers nanobio complexity.
The mission of the Department Structure and Nano-/Micromechanics is: to develop experimental methods to perform quantitative nano-/micromechanical and tribological tests for complex and miniaturized materials;to unravel the underlying deformation mechanisms by advanced microstructure characterization techniques from the micrometer level down to atomic dimensions; to establish material laws for local and global mechanical behavior; and to generate nanostructured materials and high temperature intermetallic materials with superior mechanical properties.
A group of physicists, biologists, chemists and engineers conceiving inventing and utilizing optical microscopes with resolution at the nanometer scale to advance life sciences.
Dealing with chemical and physical aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Research efforts in the Department are centered on nanometer-scale science and technology, primarily focussing on solid state phenomena that are determined by small dimensions and interfaces.
The creation of novel materials with targeted functionalities is the ultimate goal in several scientific and technological fields, ranging from chemistry and pharmaco-chemistry to molecular electronics and renewable energies. Molecular modelling and simulation are vital components of the scientific investigation of materials, as well as essential tools to engineer novel materials with improved performances. Future advances in this field should systematically address the challenge of bridging the gap between simulations and experiments. To this end, a unifying theme of this research is the development of a modelling framework for the investigation of materials. Through the creative synthesis of traditional all-atom simulations, electronic structure methods, and rare events techniques, we apply a multiscale approach to the study of materials and nanostructures.
Four departments: Biomaterials, Colloid Chemistry, Interfaces as well as Theory and Bio-Systems. Current research topics are polymeric films, membranes, micro- capsules, organic and inorganic nano- structures, biomineralization, nanoreactors or molecular motors.
Experimental and theoretical research carried out at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics is primarily focussed on solid state phenomena that are determined by small dimensions and surfaces and interfaces. The investigations concentrate on establishing relations between the magnetic, electronic, optical, and mechanical properties of solids and their microstructure. Thin films and surfaces are investigated as well as nanocrystalline materials, phase boundaries and defects in bulk crystals.
Through courses already offered in the Faculties of Science, Engineering, and Medicine, depending on the courses completed, undergraduate students will acquire knowledge in areas related to nanotechnology.
