CAN's research is focused in two areas.

  • Wafer-Scale Methodologies (WSM) for forming nanostructures suitable for developing quantum functional nanodevices.
    The WSM consists of three sub-projects.
    • WSM-1, Nanostructures formed by Critically Tuned Self-assembly Processes
      Professors Geoffrey Ozin and John Polanyi
    • WSM-2, Nanostructure Formation due to Self-assembly, driven by Lithographically-defined Sub-structures
      Professors Geoffrey Ozin, John Polanyi and Harry Ruda
    • WSM-3, Nanostructures resulting from Material Deposition and/or Processing following Lithographic Patterning
      Professors Ian Mitchell, Harry Ruda and Stefan Zukotynski
  • Exploring Emergent Phenomena (EP) in interacting and non-interacting nanosystems suitable for developing nanodevices.
    The EP program consists of eight sub-projects.
    • EP-1, Nano-ferromagnetic and Superconducting Spin-injection Systems for Non-volatile and High-speed Memories
      Professor John Wei
    • EP-2, Nano-ferroelectric Systems, leading to Novel FRAM Devices
       Professor Harry Ruda
    • EP-3, Single Electron and Collective Phenomena in Interacting Quantum Systems
      Professors Ian Mitchell , Geoffrey Ozin, John Polanyi, Harry Ruda, William van Wijngaarden, and Martin Zinke-Allmang
    • EP-4, Hybrid Systems of Nanocrystals embedded in different matrices suitable for Optical and Electronic Applications
      Professors Geoffrey Ozin, Harry Ruda and Edward Sargent
    • EP-5, Molecular Systems leading to nano-electronic/nano-photonic devices and systems
      Professor Ian Manners
    • EP-6, Hot Carrier Issues in Nanodevices
      Professors W. Ng, Harry Ruda and Edward Sargent
    • EP-7, Dopant Fluctuation-related Issues in Scaled Devices
      Professors W. Ng and Harry Ruda
    • EP-8, Interface/Surface Effects in Nanostructures
      Professors Zhenghong Lu, Doug Perovic and Harry Ruda
