The programme is intended for students aiming at a career in the area of materials science, which is a very broad field both scientifically and technologically. Scientists who work in industry or at universities and engineers who work in materials science are active in fields ranging from fundamental materials development to application of materials technology to products and processes.
Large efforts, experimental as well as theoretical, are directed at materials, devices and subsystems for future micro/nanoelectronics in the fields of microwave electronics, quantum devices, photonics, micro- and nanosystems, superconducting devices and circuits and molecular electronics just to mention a few.
The Nanofabrication Laboratory is a world-class university cleanroom for research into and fabrication of micro and nano technology. The laboratory is run by the department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience at Chalmers, but is an open user facility for external as well as internal academic and industrial interests.
Charged Particle Nanotech is an Integrated Project in the European Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), research priority NMP ('Nanotechnologies and Nanosciences, knowledge-based Multifunctional Materials, and new Production Processes and Devices'). CHARPAN is driven by industrial needs for new efficient production technologies for the fabrication of complex 2D and 3D surface structures necessary in numerous nanotechnology devices such as templates for nanoimprint applications.
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at Chemnitz University of Technology offers a new, 4-semester international master's programme in Micro and Nano Systems. The programme provides world-class, future-oriented education in design, manufacturing, characterization and integration of miniaturized components into engineering systems.
The center has been established at the institute of physics of the Chemnitz University of technology to concentrate and coordinate the activities of several research groups in the field of design and analytics of materials, especially organic/inorganic hybrid materials on the nanometer scale.
The Ingber laboratory is interested in the general mechanism of cell and developmental regulation. The lab also has shown that extracellular matrix and cell shape distortion play central roles in control of angiogenesis that is required for tumor growth and expansion, and has developed numerous novel microtechnologies, nanotechnologies, magnetic control systems and computational models in the course of pursuing these studies.
This research group focuses on the basis theory and applications of molecular electronics, nano- and micro- ordered thin film, and bionics thin film; on the research of the novel apparatus such as photoelectronic device and biosensor; and on the applications of nanomaterial system in controlled drug release.
Your program will include three semesters at CVTC, where you'll have a rare opportunity to work with state-of-the-art equipment in specially designed facilities, such as the atomic force and scanning electron microscopes and Class 100 cleanroom. Your fourth semester will be a capstone experience at CVTC and another area institution. You'll also complete an internship to gain workplace experience.
Chulalongkorn University considers nanotechnology as a promising integrated knowledge in science, engineering, pharmaceutical and medical. On this view point, Center of Innovation (CIN) was established on the occasion of 100th anniversary of the university.
CIC biomaGUNE (Centro de Investigacion Cooperativa en Biomateriales - Bioscience Cooperative Research Centre) is a non-profit association with the basic aim of creating, producing, promoting and applying scientific and technological knowledge in the biomaterials field by carrying out systematic research and experimental development work. One of the research programs puts particular emphasis on the properties and applications of molecular-level biological nanostructures.
The mission of the Portugese Center for Research in Ceramics and Composite Materials (Ciceco) is to develop the scientific and technological knowledge necessary for the innovative production and transformation of ceramics and composite materials. Research areas include nanostructured materials.
The Research Center on Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology (CINN) is a joint research center created in 2007 by institutional joint initiative between the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC), the Government of Asturias and the University of Oviedo. The CINN combines interdisciplinary research strongly competitive at international level with scientific and technological demonstration activities towards enterprises technologically advanced, and has among its main objectives the creation of new technology-based firms.
The EU FP6 project Circles of Light is expected to increase the European competitiveness in Nanophotonics by providing new solutions to overcome technological gaps and to make silicon a leading material base also in photonics.
A non-profit organization, CiS Forschungsinstitut für Mikrosensorik und Photovoltaik GmbH is an industry-oriented research institution focused on microsensors, microsystem technology and photovoltaics.
Research focus includes the construction of nanostructured organic materials for bionanotechnology applications, understanding growth mechanisms of nanostructures and designing new structures and multifunctional organic-inorganic hybrid materials such as gel-nanoparticles and liquid crystal nanoparticles.
