The Center for Nano and Microcontamination Control addresses particulate and chemical contamination and defects that directly affect semiconductor fabrication, where aggressive miniaturization will reduce feature sizes to less than 35 nm in the next 5-10 years. The Center's goal is to develop state of the art techniques for micro and nanoscale contaminant control, mitigation, removal and characterization in manufacturing and fabrication processes.
The InterNano Directory of Experts and Organizations is a listing of both researchers and research organizations that are engaged in nanomanufacturing.
The goal of the Center for Scalable and Integrated NAno Manufacturing (SINAM), an NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center, is to establish a new manufacturing paradigm that integrates an array of new nano-manufacturing technologies. Founded in 2003, SINAM brings together an exceptional team of scientists and engineers from University of California Los Angeles, University of California Berkeley, Stanford University, University of California San Diego, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and HP Labs.
ONAMI is Oregon’s first ‘Signature Research Center’ and a multi-level collaboration among Oregon’s research universities, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and industry in the “Silicon Forest” high-tech cluster that is home to the world’s leading semiconductor, MEMS, nanotechnology tools and quantum dot industrial sites.
The Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing is focused on developing tools and processes that will enable high-rate/high-volume bottom-up, precise, parallel assembly of nanoelements (such as carbon nanotubes, nanoparticles, etc.) and polymer nanostructures. The Center nanotemplates are utilized to conduct fast massive directed assembly of nanoscale elements by controlling the forces required to assemble, detach, and transfer nanoelements at high rates and over large areas.
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.
The Center for Hierarchical Manufacturing (CHM) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst is an NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC) with a focus in on the development of nanomanufacturing processes. The CHM has three Technical Research Group areas (nanoscale materials and processes, nanoelectronics and bionanotechnology) and Process Development Test Beds that advance the implementation of new nanomanufacturing methods, including, for example, block copolymer and nanoimprint patterning technologies.
