CURRENT RESEARCH PROJECTS
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
