Created in 2003 the NanoMaDe team (NanoMAterials & DEvices) is involved in the field of nanotechnology and nanoscience, particularly on topics related to the carbon nanotubes, graphene and semiconductor nanowires synthesis, as well as their collective organization, deposition on various substrates, in deep characterization and integration into advanced electronic devices (field effect transistors, gas or biological sensors, NEMS, field emission micro-cathodes and other applications).
With the foundation of the Center for NanoMaterials (CNM) the TU/e strives to give a strong impulse to the fundamental and technological research of materials and devices with critical dimensions in the (sub)nanometer region. The center should foster a further integration of the existing excellent research activities on nanotechnology by facilitating multidisciplinary research, promoting exchange of expertise and the expansion of the available infrastructure.
The group brings together researchers from these two fields and aims at establishing a coherent research program on the physics and chemistry of nanostructured materials and nano-sized organic and inorganic molecular systems.
The special Master's track Nano-engineering lasts two years. Each year consists of 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System). Formally this programme is part of the master program Applied Physics. Nano-Engineering forms part of the joint activities in the field of Nanoscience & Technology of the TU/e and the Radboud University of Nijmegen.
Current research projects in the areas nanomagnetism, spintronics, and ultra-fast spin dynamics
The lab investigates mechanical materials properties from the nano to macro-scale using experimental, analytical, and computational techniques. Current cutting edge research within European projects and the ETH competence center on high temperature materials focuses on micro- and nano- mechanical properties of materials (instrumentation, scale effects related to microstructure and physical dimension.
One of the areas of research deals with nanometric positioning.
The activities of the laboratory aim at a detailed description of photo-induced processes in the molecular condensed phase (liquid, solid and proteins) and in metallic and semiconductor nanostructured materials. A central approach of the group is the visualization in 'real time' of the processes by means of ultrafast laser spectroscopy.
NANOLAB is working on various subjects in the field of silicon micro/nano-electronics with special emphasis on the technology, design and modelling of nanoscale solid-state devices (including Silicon-On-Insulator devices, few-electron devices, hybrid SET/CMOS, single electron memory, nanowires and nanotubes), Radio Frequency MEMS devices for in- and above-IC and integrated optoelectronic devices. The group is interested in exploring new materials, novel fabrication techniques, and novel device concepts for future nanoelectronic systems.
The Nanophotonics & Metrology Laboratory (NAM) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) covers a broad spectrum, from nanophotonics to plasmonics, near-field optical microscopy to spectroscopy, from optical signal processing for sensing and telecommunications to speckle and holographic interferometry.
