Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

Nanoscience and Nanotechnology involve the design, fabrication, characterization, and implementation of materials with at least one dimension smaller than 100 nm. Although small, the promise for modern technology is tremendous, due to enormous surface areas, improved ratios of functionality to weight (or volume), the emergence of totally new properties, and diminished energy consumption during manufacturing. These enhancements are already strongly leveraged in the energy, aerospace, biomedical, semiconducting, and communications sectors, with the market only continuing to grow. MS&E faculty particularly emphasize novel nanoscale characterization, modelling, and applications.
