The Ph.D. in Nanoscale Science at UNC Charlotte is an interdisciplinary program that addresses the development, manipulation, and use of materials and devices on the scale of roughly 1-100 nanometers in length, and the study of phenomena that occur on this size scale. The program prepares students to become scholarly, practicing scientists who possess the critical thinking, methodological, and communication skills required to advance and disseminate knowledge of fundamental and applied nanoscale science.
The Center for Nano Science and Technology explores new device concepts and associated architectures that are enabled by novel phenomena on the nanometer scale. It catalyzes multidisciplinary research and education in nanoelectronics, molecular electronics, nano-bio and bio-fluidic microstructures, circuits, and architectures. It facilitates collaborations between participating faculty from the departments of electrical engineering, computer science and engineering, chemical engineering, chemistry and biochemistry, and physics.
CAMCOR is a full-service, comprehensive materials characterization center available to research institutions and private industry. The CAMCOR facilities provide enabling infrastructure for research in chemistry, nanoscience, materials science, bioscience, and optics.
The University of Pennsylvania's School of Engineering offers new Master of Science Degree program in Nanotechnology. The program has options for Nano Enabling Energy, Nano Enabling Medicine, Nanoelectronics and more.
The Krishna P. Singh Center for Nanotechnology integrates state-of-the-art nanocharacterization, nanofabrication, and property measurement facilities at the University of Pennsylvania. The Center houses several multi-user experimental laboratories critical to advanced research and development.
A certification in Nanoscale Science and Technology documents that a graduate student has mastered fundamental principles and practical implications in the core areas of the field. The certification program is open to all graduate students in good standing at Penn and is designed such that students in BE, CBE, ESE, MEAM, and MSE can accomplish this within their degree program, i.e. without extending the time to graduation.
The Institute of NanoScience and Engineering is an integrated, multidisciplinary organization that brings coherence to the University's research efforts and resources in the fields of nanoscale science and engineering.
Project areas include: Nanostructured materials for biological sensing; Nanoporous membranes; Nanoparticle-based drug delivery; Imaging, transport, and toxicity properties of semiconductor nanocrystals; Nanobiomechanics
The group's research goal is a complete understanding of the fundamental properties of materials with a size in between individual molecules and the bulk. Currently, their investigations are focused on fundamental studies of carbon nanotubes and semiconductor nanocrystals, and the integration of these materials into both novel non-linear optical devices and biological sensors.
