The Richard E. Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology was originally named the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology. In 2005 after the passing of Professor Smalley, the Rice University Board of Trustees renamed the Institute in his honor. In this historical account, the Institute will be referred to as the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology prior to Fall 2005 and the Smalley Institute thereafter.
The Colorado Nanotechnology Alliance is not-for-profit economic development organization governed by a strong board of directors whose core represents nanotechnology companies in the state. The Alliance provides a common, cohesive and unified voice on behalf of nanotechnology. It serves as the catalyst organization to connect, coordinate, facilitate, promote, educate, and unify industry, government, academia, and citizens around the benefits of nanotechnology commercialization.
The Nanoprobe Network a free, non-profit, web-based community for scanning probe microscopy scientists, researchers, educators, and students in industry, academia, and research labs around the world. Our goal is to provide an interactive web space for the exchange of information, ideas, techniques, protocols, images, software, and discussions.
Research in the Center for Nanoscale Chemical-Electrical-Mechanical Manufacturing Systems (Nano-CEMMS) at the University of Illinois addresses a central problem in the development of nanotechnology: how to assemble structures at sizes smaller than can be seen (or transduced) and manipulated (or transcribed). The Center's goal is to develop a reliable, robust and cost-effective nanomanufacturing system to make nanostructures from multiple materials.
