The Institute for Molecular and Nanoscale Innovation (IMNI) was founded at Brown University in 2007 as an umbrella organization to support centers and collaborative research teams in targeted areas of the molecular and nanosciences. IMNI is a polydisciplinary venture with 55 faculty participants representing nine departments across campus. IMNI serves as a focal point for interaction with industry, government, and our affiliated hospitals.
IMNI administers a state-of-the-art equipment infrastructure that consists of four facilities: Electron Microscopy Facility (EMF), Nanofabrication Central Facility (NCF), NanoTools Facility (NTF), and the Joint Engineering & Physics Instrument Shop (JEPIS). These facilities provide access to advanced instrumentation and specialized services that allow researchers to engage in matters of a broad scope and complexity.
Among other areas research into micro- and nanofabrication and nanoscience.
The R. Hurt laboratory at Brown focuses on the creation of 3D nanomaterial architectures and new nano-enabled technologies. They also study the potential adverse effects of emerging 2D nanomaterials on human health and the environment and work to identify safe design rules rooted in fundamental materials chemistry and physics that will enable their successful development and commercialization.
Research and education carried out in this laboratory are associated with the experimental, computational and conceptual study of nanomechnics and micromechanics of materials
Nanofabrication manufacturing technology relates to the creation of microscopic structures. This technology is the basis of such diverse areas as computer chip manufacturing, flat panel displays and large scale solar power arrays used in space exploration, biological implants, medicine and pharmaceuticals. Rapid growth in these industries has created a strong demand for technicians with training in the intricacies of nanofabrication techniques and clean room procedures. Students enrolling in either program will spend three semesters on BCCC campus and the final capstone semester on Penn State campus.

The Atwater research group at Caltech is engaged in interdisciplinary materials and device research, spanning photonics and electronics and with applications in Si-based photonics, plasmonics, renewable energy and mechanically active thin film devices.
Research covers nanobiotechnology, nanophotonics and large-scale integration of nanosystems.
The objectives of the MSC are to develop methods required for first principles multiscale multi-paradigm based predictions of the structures and properties of proteins, DNA, polymers, ceramics, metal alloys, semiconductors, organometallics and to apply these methods to design new materials for pharma, catalysis, microelectronics, nanotechnology, and superconductors.
