Nanoscale mineral particles -- nanoparticles -- are naturally formed and removed from the environment by numerous chemical and biological processes. The Center's mission is to uncover the numerous roles played by nanoparticles in geochemical and biogeochemical processes.
The Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute (BNNI) is the umbrella organization for expanding and coordinating Berkeley research and educational activities in nanoscale science and engineering.
The mission of the group is to provide a rewarding and nourishing atmosphere of hands-on cutting edge research for students to develop and grow professionally and technically and use as an opportunity to springboard to a professional career that will benefit them and society.
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.
The group's focus is focus on nanoscale science, with an emphasis on carbon nanotubes and their respective uses.
The lab of Prof. Kenneth Breuer is active in research covering a wide variety of topics, including: Micron and nanometer scale fluid mechanics; Animal motion, in particular, bat flight and bacterial motility; Turbulent shear flows and shear flow control; Diagnostic methods for fluid mechanics.
