This virtual centre of expertise brings together leading edge academic research and expertise in applied materials chemistry at the universities of Bolton, Liverpool, Manchester and the molecular modelling capabilities of the Science and Technology Facilities Council at Daresbury, all in the UK. KCMC aims to drive industrial growth for the UK chemistry-using industries through the coordination, development and exploitation of leading edge materials chemistry research.
This PhD offers research in nanoscience and nanotechnologies which is excelled by the experimentalists in the Quantum Technology Centre and theorists in the Centre for Nanoscale Dynamics at Lancaster.
The Quantum Technology Centre contains state-of-the-art nanofabrication facilities, supported by molecular beam epitaxy reactors for atomic layer-by-layer growth of semiconductor nanostructures and devices. Fabrication techniques available include electron-beam lithography using a dedicated electron-beam writer, plasma processing and thin-film deposition. Electronic structures are measured at temperatures down to 10 mK and below by means of DC, microwave and pulse techniques. Photonic structures are characterized using a variety of specialist (0-17 Tesla) magneto-optics and (4-300 K) spectroscopy techniques, x-ray diffraction, electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy methods.
A joint enterprise with Imperial College London, the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) has been designed to act as a focus for current interdisciplinary nanoscale materials and device research.
The UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in collaboration with leading design houses, chip manufacturers and ECAD vendors has given funding of GBP5.3M ($9.1M) to apply e-Science and Grid technology to tackle some of the fundamental challenges facing nano-CMOS design.
Nanogrowth is an international project, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council EPSRC, to investigate crystal growth mechanisms in nanoporous materials, such as zeolites. The project started in October 2006 and runs for three years. The project team consists of members from universities in the United Kingdom, Sweden and France together with our industrial sponsor in the USA.
The NanoMan project is an EU-funded research project to develop new technologies for handling and control of single molecules and nanostructures on the sub 10nm scale. The ultimate aim of the project is to develop techniques and protocols, based on atomic force microscopy (AFM), that enable manipulation of sub 10nm structures on insulating surfaces.
Many new nanotechnology research fields require a high degree of precision in both observing and manipulating materials at the atomic level. The advanced nanorobotics technology needed to manipulate materials at the nanoscale is being developed in the new Sheffield NANOLAB.
The Nanotechnology KTN has been established to provide a market-oriented focus for the facilities, people and organisations engaged in Micro and Nanotechnologies in the UK and to lower entry barriers and drive the widespread market development and exploitation of these technologies.
NPL is involved with various activities and research at the Nano scale.
