Nanotechnology and Materials Chemistry deals with innovation, design, and discovery of materials for specific functions in the size regime, typically < 100 nm, in which physical properties (e.g. optical, electronic) are often significantly affected by size and structure. Nanotechnology has many potential applications and continues to impact medicine, energy technology, and electronics. The Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) offers access to wide variety of techniques and training, enabling students to acquire a formidable skill set in materials fabrication and characterization.
