Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC)

Investigator: Tejal A. Desai, PhD
Sponsor: Ohio State University

Location(s): United States


A Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC) will be headquartered at Ohio State, and draw on the expertise of more than thirty faculty. The center will boast partners in Ohio industry, as well as prominent institutions around the country and the world.
The goal of this program is to support fundamental research and catalyze synergistic science and engineering research and education in emerging areas of nanoscale science and technology, including: biosystems at the nanoscale; nanoscale structures, novel phenomena, and quantum control; nanoscale devices and system architecture; nanoscale processes in the environment; multi-scale, multi-phenomena theory, modeling and simulation at the nanoscale; manufacturing processes at the nanoscale; and studies on the societal and educational implications of scientific and technological advances on the nanoscale.
