RTI, an advanced technology research institute, initiated a focus on nanotechnology to consolidate and coordinate years of successful work in thermoelectrics, materials science and engineering, and filtration and aerosol technology.
Multidisciplinary basic research into the nature and limits to self-organization in combinatorially complex chemical systems. Electronic micro-and nanosystems provide controlled and programmable environments for studying and optimizing such systems, and so our research is also forging a link between the three rapidly expanding technologies: Information Technology (IT), Biotechnology (BT) and Nanotechnology (NT).
Supported equally by the Russell Berrie Foundation, the Government of Israel through TELEM, and Technion, RBNI aims at positioning the Technion and the State of Israel at the forefront of global nanotechnology research and development.
The Russian Corporation of Nanotechnology (RCNT) was established to address the growing challenge that arises with the rapid development of new technologies in the nanoscale. The key directions of RCNT's activity are: 1) provide assistance to the state policies in the sphere of nanotechnology; 2) development of the innovative infrastructure for nanotechnologies; 3) achievement of projects aimed at creating innovative nanotechnologies and nanoindustries.
The society unites the Russian scientists and engineers working in various areas of a science and engineering: physics of a surface, physics of semiconductors, biophysics, physical chemistry, microelectronics and organisations involved in researches in the area of SPM, developments in the area of instrument making with application SPM, foreign scientists promoting development SPM in Russia
