Six NSE Research and Education Themes
Biosystems at the Nanoscale
Supports the development of a fundamental understanding of nanobiostructures and processes, nanobiotechnology; and fundamental concepts for novel techniques for a broad range of applications in biomaterials, biosystem-based electronics, agriculture, energy, and health.
Nanoscale Structures, Novel Phenomena, Quantum Control
Explores the novel phenomena and material structures that appear at the nanoscale. Critical to overcoming obstacles to miniaturization as feature sizes in devices reach the nanoscale. Also refers to development of the experimental tools necessary to characterize and measure nanostructures and phenomena, and development of techniques for synthesis and design.
