The mission of the Nano-Device Laboratory (NDL) research group is theoretical and experimental investigation of the properties of inorganic / organic / hybrid nanostructures and development of novel electronic / optical / thermoelectric devices and circuits based on these nanostructures.
The UCR online Master of Science in Engineering with a specialization in Materials at the Nanoscale is an exploration of nanoscale processes and applications, including the design, synthesis and processing of nanostructured materials. Coursework covers a variety of high-level topics in nanoscience, including microelectromechanical systems and crystal structure, bonding and defects.
The group is developing the science base for the production, characterization and modeling of nanoparticles as well as their environmental impact and their assembly into functional nanostructures.
The Department of NanoEngineering offers undergraduate programs leading to the B.S. degrees in NanoEngineering and Chemical Engineering.
This new department, established July 1, 2007, will cover a broad range of topics, but focus particularly on biomedical nanotechnology, nanotechnologies for energy conversion, computational nanotechnology, and molecular and nanomaterials.
The research in Joseph Wang's group focuses on field of nanobioelectronics in which nanomaterials are applied to the analysis of biomolecules. Nanobioelectronics is a rapidly developing field aimed at integrating nano- and biomaterials with electronic transducers.
Plans are currently underway to develop graduate curricula leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in NanoEngineering by 2011. Until NanoEngineering graduate programs are in place, students wishing to pursue nanoengineering as a graduate focus are encouraged to apply to related graduate programs in bioengineering, chemical engineering, and mechanical and aerospace engineering. Transfer to NanoEngineering will be considered upon approval of its degree programs.
The group's research is motivated by how light interacts with matter on the nanoscale. The main research direction focuses on taking advantage of efficient light-matter interactions for applications in novel nanoscale devices and sensors. Towards that end, the group explores integrating nanoelectronic and nanomechanical effects with nanophotonic devices to achieve hybrid devices with new functionality. They also investigate unique optical properties of graphene and emerging two-dimensional direct bandgap semiconductor materials for novel sensors and devices.
UC San Diego established the Department of NanoEngineering within its Jacobs School of Engineering effective July 1, 2007. The department will cover a broad range of topics, but focus particularly on biomedical nanotechnology, nanotechnologies for energy conversion, computational nanotechnology, and molecular and nanomaterials.
The group of Prof. Zhang works on the design, synthesis, characterization and evaluation of lipid- and/or polymer-based nanostructured biomaterials. One specific interest lies in developing nanomaterials for healthcare and other medical applications, for example, drug delivery to improve or enable treatments of human diseases. In addition, they also seek to understand the fundamental sciences underlying the arenas of nanomedicine.
