The A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute (DNI) coordinates interdisciplinary research, education and outreach, and strategic partnerships in nanomaterials for all of Drexel University. Faculty, students, and industry partners collaborate in activities ranging from core research to improving the public’s understanding and interest in nanoscale materials.
SGT has the expertise and experience in developing high performance materials and products through innovative applications of nanotechnology. “Nanotechnology” is the design, production (synthesis) and application of nanomaterials and nanostructures in advanced macrosystems. Materials reduced to the nanoscale (1x10-9 meter) show very different properties compared to what they exhibit on a macro-scale thereby enabling unique applications. It is possible to produce ultra-strong and ultra-light multifunctional materials through nanotechnology.
