The central theme of the group's research is the exploration of quantum mechanical effects in engineered nanoscale structures and devices with a goal to study fundamental physical phenomena.
Research focuses on mechanical and electronic systems at the nanometer length scale. The group has state-of-the-art facilities where nanodevices can be fabricated and characterized.
The Nanoscale Energy-Fluids Transport (NEFT) laboratory experimentally studies energy and fluids transport at the nanoscale. Current investigations include: Exploring anomalous transport phenomenon in 1-D or 2-D confined nanochannels; Enhancing ion/molecule transport in batteries and fuel cells using nanostructured materials; Improving phase-change heat transfer based on patterned micro/nanostructures; Developing new nanofluidic devices for biomolecule sensing and separation.
The Center serves as a hub for nanoscience researchers from the Charles River and Medical Campuses and build activities that develop interdisciplinary research and training.
Research in Optical Characterization and Nanophotonics (OCN) laboratory focuses on developing and applying advanced optical characterization techniques to the study of solid-state and biological phenomena at the nanoscale.
Highly interdisciplinary and translational, the group's research is focused on multifunctional, nanoparticle-based drug delivery systems. They seek to improve nanoparticle synthesis and formulation and its therapeutic efficacy. Additionally, they develop robust engineering processes to accelerate translation of nanoparticle-based drugs into the drug development pipeline. At the same time, they emphasize a fundamental understanding of the interface between nanomaterials and biological systems.
The Ingber laboratory is interested in the general mechanism of cell and developmental regulation. The lab also has shown that extracellular matrix and cell shape distortion play central roles in control of angiogenesis that is required for tumor growth and expansion, and has developed numerous novel microtechnologies, nanotechnologies, magnetic control systems and computational models in the course of pursuing these studies.
Shiladitya Sengupta's laboratory is focused on developing engineering solutions for complex disease. The team's research lies at the interfaces of fundamental biology, medical applications and nanoscale engineering, where basic understanding of biology inspires the development of novel technology or medical applications.
Developing nanopores as probes.
The Center for Nanotechnology and Nanotoxicology at the Harvard School of Public Health draws on decades of experience with environmental pollutants and the health effects of particles to address the unique environmental health and safety (EHS) concerns raised by engineered nanomaterials (ENM) and nanotechnology applications.
The Lieber Research Group at Harvard focuses on the bottom-up paradigm for nanoscience and nanotechnology.
The Mazur group at Harvard University studies the dynamics of molecules, chemical reactions, and condensed matter on very short timescales - down to femtoseconds.
Park's group at Harvard probes physical and chemical properties of nanostructured materials and develops neuron-electronic interfaces.
KIBST seeks to develop a deeper understanding of the functioning of life and biology at the nanoscale level.
The Westervelt Group has three areas of focus: 1) Imaging the coherent flow of electrons inside semiconductor nanostructures at low temperatures using scanning probe microscopy; 2) Studies of tunnel-coupled quantum dots and the fabrication of artificial molecules composed of few-electron quantum dots to implement qubits for quantum information processing; 3) Development of micro-electromagnets to trap, move, and assemble particles.
