Nanoscience Technology Center

The National Chiao Tung University's Center for Nano Science and Technology was formally established in Nov. 2001. The center serves as a focal point, within the University for the research and development of nanotechnologies. There are three objectives for the center. They are

  • to promote and coordinate large-scale interdisciplinary research programs in nano-science and technology.
  • to plan and to co-ordinate cross-disciplinary undergraduate and postgraduate training in nano-science and technology.
  • to serve as a bridge between the university's nano-research and the industrial application in nanotechnology.

To fulfill these objectives, we have established a central laboratory equipped with analytical and processing tools for nano-research. The center constantly seeks cooperative research opportunities with other research organization both within and outside the country. Several large research programs including nano-devices, nano-materials and nano-physics are being carried out. More than 150 faculty members and 200 graduate students are actively participating in various branches of nano-science and technology. The center of nano science and technology will be a center of excellence serving as an integration point bringing together the nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, nanomaterials, and nanobiotech technologies that will power the nanotechnology revolution in Taiwan. The center has a goal to become a research, development, technology deployment and education resource center supporting high technology commercialization through collaborative partnerships between business, government and academia.

The Center is working together with four-university system consisting of NCTU, NTHU, NCU and NYMU provides an effective organization to meet the challenges posed by the nano revolution.
