National Laboratories

  • Center for Functional Nanomaterials, Brookhaven National Laboratory
  • Center for Integrated Nanotechnology, Sandia National Laboratories and Los Alamos National Laboratory
  • Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences, Argonne National Laboratory
  • NASA Ames nanotechnology effort started in early 1996 and has steadily grown to establish a center for nanotechnology. The research work focuses on experimental research and development (R&D) as well as on a strong modeling and simulation effort. In addition, the center conducts research in computational electronics, computational optoelectronics, and computational modeling of processes encountered in nanofabrication and microelectronics manufacturing.
  • Molecular Foundry, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
  • Oak Ridge National Laboratory is a contributor to the national program in nanotechnology. Its materials sciences thrusts include work in polymers; nanoscale science, engineering and technology; and process modeling and simulation.

  • IN-VSEE is a consortium of university and industry scientists and engineers, community college and high school science faculty and museum educators with a common vision of creating an interactive World Wide Web (WWW) site to develop a new educational thrust based on remote operation of advanced microscopes and nano-fabrication tools coupled to powerful surface characterization methods.
  • Nano Computer Dream Team is a non-profit organization dedicated to the design and development of nanocomputers.
  • is operated by a group of Post Doc and PhD students in the field of nanomaterials. They challenge people to discover the nanoworld: the study of materials and technologies at nanometer scale. The site contains original articles (Nanotechnology Journal), references and links.
  • The National Nanofabrication Users Network (NNUN) provides access to some of the most sophisticated nanofabrication technologies in the world with facilities open to all users from academia, government, and industry.
  • Open Directory Project provides a list of links for articles, books and conferences on nanotechnology.
  • The Virtual Journal of Nanoscale Science & Technology is a joint effort of the American Insitute of Physics and the American Physical Society. It gives a weekly compilation of the latest research on nanoscale systems.


  • The Centre for Nanoscale Science & Technology at the University of Newcastle provides a continuous link from generic research in all Faculties of the University, through materials, engineering and device fabrication support to clinical testing of prototype devices and systems.
  • The Nanobiotechnology Center at Cornell University is characterized by its highly interdisciplinary nature and features a close collaboration between life scientists, physical scientists and engineers.
  • NanoStructures Laboratory at Princeton University explores, develops and fabricates new nanotechnologies that are substantially smaller, better, and cheaper than current technology permits. This includes nanoscale electronic, optoelectronic, and magnetic devices.
  • Ralph Merkle's research interests plus a collection of papers. His article "It's a Small, Small, Small, Small World" addresses the tools of the nanotechnology tradae becoming better defined with the ability to create new materials and devices by placing every atom and molecule in the right place.
