Nanotechnology Research - Initiatives and Networks
Showing results 11 - 20 of 37 of initiatives and networks in Germany:
The materials investigated include metals, amorphous and crystalline alloys, semiconductors, oxide, nitride and carbide ceramics in the form of clusters, thin films, multilayers and bulk nanocrystalline materials. All synthesis techniques are based on vapor phase processes such as Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE), Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) and DC- and RF- Magnetron Sputtering for thin films and multilayers and Chemical Vapor Synthesis (CVS) and Inert Gas Condensation (IGC) for clusters and nanocrystalline materials.
(website in German) A network of nano and nanobiotech research groups and companies in the Munich region.
The Bavarian research cooperation for miniaturised analysis techniques using nanotechnology.
Nearly one third of the currently 58 Institutes of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft is working in the field of nanotechnology
The joint research project of four institutes, entitled 'FUNgraphen' and funded by the German Federal Minister of Education and Research (BMBF), will build an innovation center aiming at the development of unconventional carbon nano materials, novel flat carbon macromolecules, nanocomposites and multilayer systems. Key components are large area ultrathin single layer carbon materials (graphene) with average diameter of around 0.1 nm as new 2D carbon macromolecules produced from natural graphite.
Initiated and coordinated by BAuA, UBA (Federal Environment Agency), BfR (Federal Institute for Risk Assessment) and BAuA have developed a joint research strategy, that addresses especially health and environmental risks of engineered nanoparticles. The draft proposes 25 different projects on nanotechnology.
The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation) is the central self-governing organisation of science and research in Germany. As a publicly funded research foundation, the DFG's defined mission is to fund and promote all fields of science and the humanities. Major research focus is on nanotechnology.
GRADE is a three-year STREP proposal focused on advanced RTD activities necessary to demonstrate the proof-of-concept of novel graphene-based electronic devices operating at terahertz (THz) frequencies.
(German language site) An initiative to support nanotechnology activities from the Ministry of Economy of the German state Hesse.
An international association of companies and institutes in the field of microtechnology, nanotechnology and advanced materials.
