Initially the Center is focusing on carbon, silicon and biology as these three areas already make compelling arguments for the power of the nanoscale world, and because these areas fall within the campus' existing expertise. The case for nanotechnology is often made by reference to biology, where processing is frequently carried out at the level of individual molecules on the nanometer length scale. This thrust for CNSE is predicated on the idea that biology is the theater in which nanotechnology will have its first successful applications. This follows from the fact that biology is the premier example of nanoscale science and engineering, and also because biology is currently the most important driver of the research enterprise.
The group's goal is to understand and exploit phenomena that arise from quantum confinement of atoms and molecules to reduced dimensions, so as to engineer new classes of electronic and electromechanical devices.
University of California, Riverside - M.S. in Chemical Engineering with Nanotechnology Concentration
The Graduate Program offers training leading to the degrees of M.S. and Ph.D. in Chemical and Environmental Engineering. Taking advantage of the complementary skills and expertise of the faculty, our graduate students pursue interdisciplinary and often collaborative research at the frontiers of chemical and environmental engineering. One of the main research areas includes Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology.
The research group of Nosang Myung.
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 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.
