Welcome to the Nanotechnology Center...

Emerging advanced and complex materials systems that derive their properties from internal meso-scale organization represent a significant opportunity in bridging the quantum world with the macro-world.  Using this “bridge” as a foundation, advances in a broad range of technologies can be imagined.  From green approaches that generate power efficiently to bioelectronic and bionic systems that effectively enhance health and extend the human experience: the properties these novel materials systems offer can dramatically alter the technologies of tomorrow.

The Center for Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials is a highly interdisciplinary research community that combines basic research with engineering and design activities to focus on innovation and advantage in technologies based upon these advanced “quantum functional” materials.
