NanoCenter Highly Ranked


Small Times has ranked the Maryland NanoCenter #5 in education and #7 in research nationwide in its annual survey of trends in nanotechnology and microtechnology in its May/June issue.

The survey highlights the University's strengths in scanning probe microscopy, the major growth in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) on the campus and research involving combinatorial nanomaterials engineering, nanoparticle synthesis and biotechnology. Further strengths include faculty hiring, new facilities, undergraduate work in MEMS and nano and proximity to federal labs, according to the survey.

The NanoCenter's partnership with the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the university's new Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology also were cited.

The NanoCenter is a joint initiative between the Clark School, the School of Chemical and Life Sciences and the School of Computer, Mathematical and Physical Sciences.
