Primary goal of the center is to transfer the technology of validated theory and computational tools from the academic-based Center to the practitioners' development environment which is nanotechnology-based industry.
The NCF provides faculty, staff, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate and undergraduate students with state-of-the-art instrumentation for generating and characterizing materials having features with nanometer dimensions.
The goal of the Nanomotor Drug Delivery Center is to construct a synthetic modified motor with artificial components for use in a variety of nanodevices and nanomedical applications. The center is to create liposomes and nano-structured arrays with embedded and active modified phi29 DNA-packaging motors for both passive and active transport of DNA and drugs.
The Network for Computational Nanotechnology (7 universities) has a mission to connect theory, experiment, and computation in a way that makes a difference to the future of nanotechnology. While addressing challenges in nanotechnology NCN researchers produce new algorithms, approaches, and software tools with capabilities not yet available commercially.
The projects at Purdue reach across the categories of nanomaterials, nanodevices, nano/bio interfaces, nanomanufacturing, computational nanotechnology, and nanometrology/characterization.
The Nanoelectronic Modeling Group works in the area of nanoelectronics where we try to better the understanding of electron flow through nano-scale devices. The effort on modeling and simulation is heavily computer based. They try to connect to experimental results which they try to explain or even predict experiments.
The Purdue University - US Forest Service Forest Products Laboratory joint research program in nanoscale science and engineering of wood-based materials has three main drivers in forestry based nanotechnology, fundamental knowledge development, applied product development, and new technological innovations.
nanoHUB is a web-based initiative spearheaded by the NSF- Network for Computational Nanotechnology. Its mission is to serve as a resource for research and education in the areas of nano-electronics, NEMS, and their application to nano-biosystems and to be the place where experiment, theory and simulation meet and move nanoscience to nanotechnology. The Nanohub provides online simulation services as well as courses, tutorials, seminars, debates, and facilities for collaboration.
The lab is building and expanding the understanding of the fundamentals of atomic-level carrier transport and interactions, and is applying this knowledge to important energy, information, and biomedical technologies.
Nanoscale Science and Engineering embodies fundamental research and technology development of materials, structures, devices, processes, and systems where at least one physical dimension is on the length scale of approximately 1-100 nanometers. This is a current area of strength and a future area of growth at Purdue. In the department of Chemical Engineering there are 11 faculty involved with federally funded research programs in the area.
Created by the Network for Computational Nanotechnology, a consortium of eight member universities dedicated to furthering research and education in nanotechnology, nanoHUB.org offers free simulation, education, collaboration, and publication to the nanotechnology community.
The lab develops new classes of nanostructured metal-dielectric composites and their applications in nanophotonics, opto-electronics and spectroscopy.
The nanophysics lab uses innovative experimental techniques to examine the physical properties of objects in the nanoscale size range. The lab focuses primarily on scanning probe techniques.
This program provides students with the knowledge, motivation, and self-learning skills required for continuous professional development along with complex project experience and problem solving. Our goal is that these students use their potential to become future leaders and champions of nano health. Students will have the option of having a primary or dual program focus. A dual focus would have an additional emphasis on Medical Physics.
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.
