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.
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.
The main objective of this program has been the exploration of coherent quantum mechanical processes in novel solid-state semiconductor information processing devices, with components of atomic dimensions: quantum computers, spintronic devices, and nanometer-scale computer logic gates.
Nanostructured materials group is an interdisciplinary research team focused on the study and fabrication of synthetic 'smart' materials and biomaterials on a nanoscale and the scale of single molecules. Stimuli-responsive materials for biomedical applications, sensors, molecular electronics, microactuators, microfluidic devices, lipid bilayers, membranes, textiles, super-hydrophobic coatings, and responsive dispersions are of group's special interest.
An integrative research and education enterprise at Clemson University that is oriented toward service, is actively managed and directed by the constituency it serves, and is focused on providing leadership and excellence to the scientific and technological area of bioelectronics, biosensors and biochips. Research areas include nanobiosensors.
The research interests of nano-bio lab lie at the interface of physics, biology, and nanoscience. This lab aims to seamlessly integrate the principles of condensed matter physics, optical spectroscopy, and physiological chemistry to elucidate biophysics at the nanoscale.
The Nanoscale Electronics and Sensor Laboratory (NESL) is currently focused on five major research areas: Epitaxial Graphene based Sensors; MEMS sensors; Nanowire based MEMS sensors and electronics; Implantable sensors for biomedical application; Scanning probe characterization.
