Many new nanotechnology research fields require a high degree of precision in both observing and manipulating materials at the atomic level. The advanced nanorobotics technology needed to manipulate materials at the nanoscale is being developed in the new Sheffield NANOLAB.
The ETM group focuses on unique strengths and capabilities to conduct world leading research, benefiting from synergies between: microelectronics; materials research and design to simulate nanostructures and technology processes and devices; fabrication in two in-house class 100-1000 clean rooms; characterisation of materials, devices and circuits; research on emerging electronic technologies
Research activities in the group encompass a wide range of themes at the cutting-edge of nanoscale science and nanotechnology - principal interests lie in the synthesis and characterisation of new nanomaterials, such as nanodiamonds, silicon nanocrystals, gold nitride (AuN) and photon reactions on ice.
The group is working on Rotary Molecular Motors. In particular the Bacterial Flagellar Motor and F1-ATPase. The aim is to try and understand how these living machines work.
The group is active in these research areas: Additive Nanomanufacturing; Optoelectronics of Phase Change Materials; Nanometrology; Nanoelectromechanical Systems (NEMS).
The research carried out by the Centre covers two themes, nanoscale functional materials and devices and nanooptics and plasmonics.
Research includes nanoscale amterials such as nano polymers.
B.Sc. Physics with Nanotechnology Degree Scheme.
The Centre for NanoHealth (CNH) will be located within a Clinical and Biomedical research environment on Swansea?s Singleton hospital site, giving access to patients and creating a pioneering, integrated facility in which novel devices and sensors can be designed, manufactured, functionalised, tested and evaluated.
This is a one-year course, normally a first- or second-class honours degree, dependent on the area of research, offered at the univrsity's The Multidisciplinary Nanotechnology Centre.
