Nanophotonics is a stream within the university's MSc in Physics which is where the science and technology of nanotechnology and photonics meet, delivering the manipulation and control of light on the nanoscale.
The main research topics are: Nanomagnetic Logic Devices; Nanoscale Hall-probe Devices; Technology for Preventing Forgery; Smart Nanoparticles for Targeted Cancer Treatment; Fundamental Properties of Nanoscale Magnetism.
IIT Bombay has recently consolidated its Nanotechnology research activities through the formation of a Centre for Research in Nanotechnology & Science (CRNTS).This is a joint project between the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IITB) and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) to create Centres of Excellence in Nanoelectronics.
The Department, the first of its kind in Iran, was set up in March 2003 in a brand new building to concentrate the research on all aspects of computational nano-science, and to help promote the fields of nano-science and nano-technology across the country.
The Master of Science in Nanoscience & Nanoengineering provides students with scientific knowledge and research training in nanoscience and nanotechnology. The program incorporates courses in engineering physics, chemistry, materials science, mechanical engineering, electronics engineering and molecular biology & genetics.
The main aim of ITUnano is to become a regional nanotechnology research center to strengthen the nanotecnology infrastructure and research activities at ITU and to identify potential industry partners for commercialization of nanotechnology research done at the center.
The CREST Nanotoxicity Center that consists of an interdisciplinary group of researchers from Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Engineering performs comprehensive investigations of nanomaterials that will strengthen the research infrastructure of Jackson State University. The research projects include different aspects of the development and production of nanomaterials and investigations of their toxicity.
Nanotechnology research activities at the Institute of Physics are concentrated on topics related to design, fabrication, characterisation, and properties of nano-size materials and structures, with particular focus on scanning probe methods.
The mission of this Centre is to promote forefront basic and applied research in the fields of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, with potential applications towards fulfilling national strategic needs. The main research focus of the Centre includes Nano-fabrication & Nano-device, Nano-materials & Nano-structures, Nano-biotechnology & Nano-medicine, Nano-structure characterization & measurements.
Keeping in view of the importance of Nanotechnology and the infrastructure available in Jamia, the Department of Physics started a two-year M. Tech Nanotechnology course in 2007 with an initial intake of 15 students, which has been enhanced to 20 students with effect from the academic year 2012-13.
Research activities include synthesis and characterization of a variety of nanoobjects-tubes, wires and particles of different materials, their chemical modification and organization as well as thin films and powders of transition metal oxides showing interesting physical properties.
The Centre for Nano Science and Technology (CNST) aims at initiating and pursuing research activities in areas related to nanotechnology and nanoscale phenomena, for various applications at Masters level and collaborative research with other universities, institutes and industries.
