Nanotechnology research explores new materials and techniques for developing ultra small electronic and photonic components of high performance. This discipline crosses conventional scientific boundaries to merge with material science, applied physics, and biology in its quest for devices and systems with new functionality. Current projects include research on semiconductor quantum wires and quantum dots, carbon nanotubes, graphene nanoelectronics, spintronics and nanoelectronics manipulation of DNA and biomolecules.

Research topics in the discipline include:

Advanced carbon-based materials and nanoscale devices
Computational nanotechnology
Nano-electro mechanical systems (NEMS)
Nano-electronics and single electronics
Quantum nanostructures for electronics and photonics
