The NanoTech User Facility (NTUF) is available to both academic and industrial users nationwide. NTUF houses leading-edge instruments for characterization and fabrication at the micro- and nanoscales. Imaging tools include a field-emission scanning transmission electron microscope (S/TEM) with tomography capability, a field-emission scanning electron microscope (SEM) with energy-dispersed spectrometry, a laser scanning confocal microscope, a Raman confocal microscope, a fluorescence microscope, and two Scanning Probe Microscopes (SPMs). Fabrication tools include a fully equipped soft lithography shop and electron beam lithography capability in the SEM.
The efforts within the Lab are focused on obtaining basic understanding of nanofabrication processes and device operation, applying that knowledge to produce better models, simulators and devices.
The Nanotechnology Engineering honours degree program is designed to provide a practical education in key areas of nanotechnology, including the fundamental chemistry, physics, and engineering of nanostructures or nanosystems, as well as the theories and techniques used to model, design, fabricate, or characterize them. Great emphasis is placed on training with modern instrumentation techniques as used in the research and development of these emerging technologies.
The interdisciplinary research programs, jointly offered by three departments in the Faculty of Science and four in the Faculty of Engineering, provide students with a stimulating educational environment that spans from basic research through to application. The goal of the collaborative programs is to allow students to gain perspectives on nanotechnology from a wide community of scholars within and outside their disciplines in both course and thesis work. The MASc and MSc degree collaborative programs provide a strong foundation in the emerging areas of nano-science or nano-engineering in preparation for the workforce or for further graduate study and research leading to a doctoral degree.
The Quantum-Nano Centre (QNC) will be a technology incubator for the 21st Century. From Nano Structures to Quantum Information Processing, the focus of the QNC will be to develop new and practical devices that exploit the laws of quantum mechanics with applications that include computation, information, metrology and material science.
The Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN) is a world-class research centre, located at the University of Waterloo (UW) in Ontario, Canada. The campus is home to world-class researchers, flagship research facilities and Canada's largest nanotechnology undergraduate engineering program with over 450 students. The overall objective is to establish WIN as a global centre of excellence for nanotechnology and its applications.
Offers the only undergraduate program specialized in nanotechnology engineering in Canada.
The group studies nanostructures, nanostructured materials and nanodevices using atomistic modelling, multiscale computational methods and theory.
This program investigates the basic theory and applications of nanotechnology in the biological and chemical sciences, in physics and in engineering science. One of these four streams is completed at Levels 2 and 3, with a major project unit in nanotechnology at Level 3.
Nanotechnology needs to be based on a holistic approach in which design embracing environmental issues, including toxicity, are factored in, and this is an integral part of the Centre's activities. The integrated core activities of the Centre cover nano-particles, nano-devices and nano-surfaces (based on biology and 'soft chemistry').
Medical Nanotechnology is the application of the methods and techniques of Nanotechnology to medical and health areas. The student may also choose to specialise in Nanophysics or Nanochemistry opening up alternative career paths in industry (biotechnology, pharmaceutical, health, defence, chemical, petroleum, materials and engineering).
This research theme encompasses applications to nanotechnology with particular emphasis on medical nanotechnology, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for characterising molecular dynamics.
The research objectives of the group are to develop novel experimental (especially NMR-based) techniques and theoretical models for studying molecular association, organisation and dynamics.
The lab interested in developing 'smart' biomaterials that mimic the complex signaling environments of natural tissue development. Particular emphasis is placed on temporal and spatial control over growth factor activity, gene transfer, and mechanical stimulation. Includes research on nanostructured materials.
University of Wisconsin-Madison - Materials Research Science and Engineering Center on Nanostructured Interfaces (USA)
The NSF-sponsored Materials Research Science and Engineering Center at the University of Wisconsin ? Madison (UW MRSEC) is focused on the fundamental study of the structure and properties of interfaces at the nanoscale level of atoms and molecules. It is doing so across a wide array of materials platforms, from inorganic semiconducting materials to liquid crystals with engineered defects.
Current research areas include (1) relationship among morphology, size, reactivity and stability of nano-crystals; (2) nanoporous structures and pore surface properties in geological systems; (3) geochemical reactions (with focus on sorption, desorption, precipitation, dissolution, and replacement reactions) in the nanoporous environments; and (4) self-assembled nano-structures in the earth systems.
The National Science Foundation established the Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center at the University of Wisconsin - Madison to explore the self-assembly of complex materials and building blocks at the nanoscale and develop the means of communicating advances in nanotechnology to the public.
The group's research focuses on novel nanomaterial growth and nanodevice development for advanced nanoelectronic systems and energy harvesting.
Aiming to explore the science of nanomaterials having an electron or charge transfer functionality; to prepare such nanomaterials, study and develop theories for their behaviour, and exploit these new behaviours in useful applications.
The Bachelor of Nanotechnology is an interdisciplinary degree which is jointly offered by the Faculties of Engineering and Science. The degree targets the emerging field of nano-materials, molecular machines and nano-science. The course draws on major research strengths at UOW including: the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute, the Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials, the BlueScope Steel Metallurgy Centre and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science.
The thrust of the institute's activities to date has been to develop more processable Inherently Conducting Polymers and to integrate these functional materials with other host structures with desirable mechanical properties.
Soft Materials Laboratory is a multidisciplinary research team dedicated to understanding bionanomaterials, living polymerization, carbon recovery, polyionics, and molecular energy systems; the soft condensed matter province of physical and life sciences.
An undergraduate BEng/MEng course.
The group conducts research in the following areas: Research is in the following areas: Properties of microstructured photonic materials; Electronic and optical properties of nanostructures and other systems; Computer simulation of complex processes in materials using molecular dynamics; Computational micromagnetics and nanomagnetism; Electrons in nanostructures for spin electronics and quantum computing; Molecular modelling of biological macromolecules.
The intention is to create a world-class research facility with a critical mass of workers at the University, specialising in electron microscopy AND nanolithography.
