Welcome to the Nanotechnology Center...

- the Center for Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials at Wake Forest University is a multidisciplinary research and development facility focused on innovation at the intersection of new device technologies and advanced novel material systems -


Scale-engineered, complex materials systems derive their properties from an internal coupling of molecular scale phenomena with meso-scale organization. Such systems represent a significant opportunity in bridging the quantum world with the macro-world. By exploiting this coupling, these exciting new properties can lead to a broad range of advanced technologies that could only be imagined previously. At the WFU Nanotechnology Center, we focus on technologies that address areas of critical human need. These include green approaches to the efficient generation of power and bioelectronic / bionic / cybornetic systems that effectively enhance health and extend the human experience. Such novel emerging technology platforms have the power to dramatically alter the world of tomorrow.
