NanoTech is unusual among academic research centers. It combines federally supported basic research with industrially supported engineering and design activities to focus on innovation and advantage in technology development. Center programs range from green energy technologies, to bionics and biomedical sensors. The development of new advanced and complex materials structures is the central unifying theme of the Center’s work.
