The group's research focuses on the organization of DNA and DNA-mimetics and its photo-functionalization; the synthesis of DNA-templated metal nanowire; and the creation of virus-based drug delivery carries.
The group's research focuses on plasmonics for photochemistry and photophysics, including following sub-topics: Plasmonic Waveguiding; Single Molecule Studies; Plasmon Associated Energy Harvesting; Drug Delivery System based on Plasmonics.
The lab is researching inorganic optical material with its robust frame structure, and are conducting research on the expression of optical functions through formation of nanostructures on the surface.
The lab carries out experimental research into the realization and the application of the novel states of light, by generating individual single photons and controlling the quantum correlation between these photons. Toward the perfect control of single photons, they investigate nano-scale photonic structures for optical quantum devices and single photon sources.
RIKEN carries out high level experimental and research work in a wide range of fields, including physics, chemistry, medical science, biology, and engineering, covering the entire range from basic research to practical application.
The specific targeted research project RIMANA (Radical Innovation Maskless Nanolithography) aims to research and develop a key maskless nanolithography technology for low to medium volume production, essential for the semiconductor industry and emerging nanotechnology industry.
This four year program combines majors in nanotechnology and either physics or chemistry and encompasses physical, chemical, biological and engineering nanoscience and nanotechnology. This double degree provides a strong grounding in nanotechnology, the science and engineering of materials less than a micrometer in size across the disciplines of physics and chemistry with substantial biology and engineering components.
The Centre for Advanced Materials and Industrial Chemistry (CAMIC) is a multidisciplinary centre that strives to undertake high quality fundamental and applied research. The interconnected research themes in the centre allow materials scientists, nanotechnologists and applied scientists with industrial experience to undertake ambitious research projects from conception to real world implementation.
The group's research focuses on fundamental as well as applied aspects of quantum theory. Since quantum effects are usually pronounced when thermal disturbances are low, our research has a significant overlap with low temperature physics. Specifically, they are interested in laser-cooled atoms and molecules, cryogenically or radiatively cooled nanomechanics, and superconductors.
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 RO-NANOMED project is devoted to the creation and development of an integrated research network in the field of nanobiotechnology for health. This network is targeting integration into the European Technology Platform (ETP) 'NanoMedicine'.
The activity of the group focuses on two main areas. On the one hand, the Group develops and applies new chemometric techniques related to the validation of analytical methodologies. On the other hand, the second main activity of the Group is the transfer of knowledge and technology.
The main aim of the Master's Degree is to provide students with solid, interdisciplinary training that will make it possible to respond to the challenges of scientific and technological development. Students will learn about new tools for fabricating, nanohandling and characterizing materials, devices and systems of nanometric size that are necessary for undertaking experimental work.
The group works on modeling and design of linear and nonlinear photonic crystals; the development of technologies based on the macroporous ordered silicon and on the nanoporous silicon for the production of 1D and 2D photonic crystals; and the development of physical models for advanced electronic devices: Thin-film transistors, nanometric-sized MOSFETs, silicon-based heterojunction devices.
