Nanoscience, and Engineering is everywhere around us - in the last decade our knowledge of the Nano-world has grown rapidly and it is now possible to make nano-structures with incredible complexity and a multitude of functionalities. From the nanoparticle used in solar cells to the water-repellent coating and the nano-electromechanical device weighing single molecules - the opportunities are exciting. Nanoscience and Engineering is by its very nature highly inter-disciplinary and as such many EP students work in this area, and have advisors in different engineering departments, and in physics. For example, several groups in Chemical Engineering and Materials Science study the synthesis of nanomaterials and their chemical reactivity, while students in Electrical and Computer Engineering focus on building circuits of 2D materials such as graphene or study molecular electronics. Check out the links below to see the breadth of work done in Nanoscience!
