Nanoscience and nanotechnology are built upon chemistry and physics. This degree is a solid science degree (physics and chemistry) but with a unique focus on nanoscience and nanotechnology. In the Years 3 and 4 of the degree the student chooses to major in either physics or chemistry, but all students do the nanotechnology modules.
INSPIRE (formally known as NANOTEIRE) is a consortium of all Irish third level institutions with international leading research capability in nanoscience and nanotechnology. INSPIRE exists to foster, facilitate and ultimately ensure collaboration and partnership between top ranking Irish and international scientists and engineers in nanoscience research and education. INSPIRE will enable Ireland to join an elite group of the highest ranking nanoscience countries worldwide making it an increasingly attractive location for relevant indigenous and foreign investment.
NanoNet Ireland is a voluntary network representing all the key stakeholders in developing nanoscience and nanotechnology in Ireland ? government, academia and industry.
The Centre's research is focused on innovative therapeutic solutions to current medical challenges and deals with various nanoscale applications and materials.
This laboratory is focuses on the dynamics and kinetics of interacting biomolecules, the mechanics of protein imported to mitochondria membranes, the kinetics of molecular motors under external strain and the nanomechanical action at ribosomal complexes during translation.
This is a four-year degree programme, run jointly by the Schools of Chemistry and Physics at Trinity College Dublin. Students will gain a deep and lasting understanding of the science of advanced materials that underpins the nano revolution. Some laboratory training is provided in CRANN, the leading institute for nanoscience in Ireland.
The key areas in micro/nanoelectronics research being pursued at Tyndall include: The fabrication and characterisation of novel nanoscale device structures on silicon;The heterogeneous integration of nanoscale materials into practical working devices of interest to the electronics industry; The integration of novel functional materials onto active silicon devices, designed to permit the delivery of added functionality for systems-on-chip (SoC) applications including on-chip power, sensing and actuation.
The Centre for BioNano Interactions (CBNI) is a multi-disciplinary platform for Nanotoxicology and NanoMedicine. CBNI is Ireland's National Platform for BioNanoInteraction science, and draws together specialists from its Universities, Institutes and companies. They are one of the world's leading Centres of knowledge for bionanointeractions applied to the fields of nanosafety, nanobiology and nanomedicine, and we are pioneering many of the new techniques and approaches in the arena.
Current MSc projects include molecular modelling, molecular motors, imaging and analysis, atomic force microscopy, light scattering in tissues, and organic solar cells. Future career options include biomedical technologies, pharmaceutical industry and drug development, sustainable energy, academic and industrial research, and students are taught innovation as part of the programme.
CRANN is Ireland's first purpose-built Research Institute with a mission to advance the frontiers of nanoscience. The three major research areas are Nano-Biology of Cell Surface Interactions, Bottom-Up Fabrication and Testing of Nanoscale Integrated Devices and Magnetic Nano-Structures and Devices.
