Miami University
The Miami University Center for Nanotechnology (MUCN) is an interdisciplinary collaboration dedicated to the education, research, safety, and commercialization issues of nanotechnology. The unique phenomena exhibited by materials in the nanodomain opens new frontiers in basic and applied research that are revolutionary in nature. That is why MUCN says Nano is Really HUGE.

MUCN is set-up to:

  • Train interdisciplinary scientific and engineering professionals that are well grounded in the basic physical/biological sciences and engineering.

  • Perform collaborative, interdisciplinary basic research in various areas of nanotechnology.

  • Establish joint development collaborations for applied nanotechnology through alliances with industry and government laboratories.

  • Focus applied research toward the safe and efficient commercialization of nanotechnology opportunities.

  • Provide nanotechnology exhibits, talks and workshops to promote nanotechnology to K-12 students and teachers and the community at-large.

What's New?
  • The Miami University Center for Nanotechnology is part of the Third Frontier $28 million Institute for the Development and Commercialization of Advanced Sensor Technology (IDCAST) Wright Center for Innovation Center lead by the University of Dayton and the Air Force Research Laboratory.
