University of California at Davis - Nanomaterials in the Environment, Agriculture, and Technology (N(...) (USA)
NEAT focuses on applications in ceramic, chemical, electronic, environmental, and agricultural technology; environmental transport and transformation and resulting roles in environmental pollution and remediation; interactions with the biosphere, especially microorganisms; effects on health.
The Alivisatos Group is a research group at UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
Seung-Wuk Lee's research group uses chemical and biological approaches to create precisely defined nanomaterials, to investigate complex phenomena at their interfaces, and to develop novel, biomimetic, functional materials. Specifically, they focus on bone and its basic building blocks to study the fundamental mechanisms of bone mineralization and resorption and to develop bioinspired functional materials and devices.
ENSI, partnered with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, brings together some of the world?s top researchers from across the fields of materials science, physics, engineering, and biology. Their investigations into nature?s ways of managing energy at the nanoscale will lead to real change in our capacity to generate, store, and use energy. Together, these researchers aim to improve the performance of existing energy technologies and develop entirely new ways of harnessing energy for the world?s growing population.
Professor Jeffrey Bokor's group at Berkeley.
The Yang research group is interested in the synthesis of new classes of materials and nanostructures, with an emphasis on developing new synthetic approaches and understanding the fundamental issues of structural assembly and growth that will enable the rational control of material composition, micro/nano-structure, property and functionality.
The Zettl research group in the Department of Physics at U.C. Berkeley and in the Materials Sciences Division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory currently investigates electronic, magnetic and mechanical properties of nanoscale materials such as fullerenes, carbon and non-carbon nanotubes.
The group works at the intersection of physics, chemistry, biology, and materials science. They use a multidisciplinary approach to design, synthesize, and characterize biologically inspired materials for applications in unconventional electronic devices.
The mission of INRF is to develop and promote engineered nanoscale systems through research, education and outreach.
David Kisailus' lab is involved in the structure-function relationships in biomineralized tissues and the biologically inspired and mimetic synthesis of nano-scaled materials for energy-based applications.
The Bockrath research group at CalTech
Initially the Center is focusing on carbon, silicon and biology as these three areas already make compelling arguments for the power of the nanoscale world, and because these areas fall within the campus' existing expertise. The case for nanotechnology is often made by reference to biology, where processing is frequently carried out at the level of individual molecules on the nanometer length scale. This thrust for CNSE is predicated on the idea that biology is the theater in which nanotechnology will have its first successful applications. This follows from the fact that biology is the premier example of nanoscale science and engineering, and also because biology is currently the most important driver of the research enterprise.
The group's goal is to understand and exploit phenomena that arise from quantum confinement of atoms and molecules to reduced dimensions, so as to engineer new classes of electronic and electromechanical devices.
University of California, Riverside - M.S. in Chemical Engineering with Nanotechnology Concentration (USA)
The Graduate Program offers training leading to the degrees of M.S. and Ph.D. in Chemical and Environmental Engineering. Taking advantage of the complementary skills and expertise of the faculty, our graduate students pursue interdisciplinary and often collaborative research at the frontiers of chemical and environmental engineering. One of the main research areas includes Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology.

The mission of the Nano-Device Laboratory (NDL) research group is theoretical and experimental investigation of the properties of inorganic / organic / hybrid nanostructures and development of novel electronic / optical / thermoelectric devices and circuits based on these nanostructures.
The UCR online Master of Science in Engineering with a specialization in Materials at the Nanoscale is an exploration of nanoscale processes and applications, including the design, synthesis and processing of nanostructured materials. Coursework covers a variety of high-level topics in nanoscience, including microelectromechanical systems and crystal structure, bonding and defects.
The group is developing the science base for the production, characterization and modeling of nanoparticles as well as their environmental impact and their assembly into functional nanostructures.
The Department of NanoEngineering offers undergraduate programs leading to the B.S. degrees in NanoEngineering and Chemical Engineering.
The Center develops bio-inspired materials and technologies to activate, program, and reinstate optimal immune system function. Specifically, they: Activate the immune system to hone in disease sites; program immune cells to recognize and clear disease; and reinstate immune balance to restore normal function.
This new department, established July 1, 2007, will cover a broad range of topics, but focus particularly on biomedical nanotechnology, nanotechnologies for energy conversion, computational nanotechnology, and molecular and nanomaterials.
The research in Joseph Wang's group focuses on field of nanobioelectronics in which nanomaterials are applied to the analysis of biomolecules. Nanobioelectronics is a rapidly developing field aimed at integrating nano- and biomaterials with electronic transducers.
Plans are currently underway to develop graduate curricula leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in NanoEngineering by 2011. Until NanoEngineering graduate programs are in place, students wishing to pursue nanoengineering as a graduate focus are encouraged to apply to related graduate programs in bioengineering, chemical engineering, and mechanical and aerospace engineering. Transfer to NanoEngineering will be considered upon approval of its degree programs.
The group's research is motivated by how light interacts with matter on the nanoscale. The main research direction focuses on taking advantage of efficient light-matter interactions for applications in novel nanoscale devices and sensors. Towards that end, the group explores integrating nanoelectronic and nanomechanical effects with nanophotonic devices to achieve hybrid devices with new functionality. They also investigate unique optical properties of graphene and emerging two-dimensional direct bandgap semiconductor materials for novel sensors and devices.
UC San Diego established the Department of NanoEngineering within its Jacobs School of Engineering effective July 1, 2007.
