Nanotechnology

Applied Materials Systems

The information age owes its origin to shrinking of devices’ dimensions. Nature inherently has things operating in ‘nano’ to ‘femto’ dimensions. The science of small things and the technology involving the assembly of atoms and molecules to create devices, systems and machines is revolutionizing every sphere of human life in general. Nanotechnology by its nature is interdisciplinary. Chemists, Physicists, Biologists, and Engineers, all have roles to play in the development and implementation of Nanotechnology. The development includes controlled manipulation of individual molecules and nano-scale structures, and their integration into larger material components, systems and architectures. Within these larger scale assemblies, the control and construction of their structures and components remains at the nanometer scale. Essential in nanotechnology, is to have a direct control of matter either between two nano-objects, or between a micro (or macro) object and a nano-object. The research at PPCRC focuses on broad range of Nanobiological Sciences, Semiconductor devices, Nano-medicine and other spin-off applications.
