Research at the Nano-Science Center
The vision of the Nano-Science Center is to create a strong cross-disciplinary environment that are capable of exploring and utilising the new phenomena and opportunities which nanotechnology is bringing us.
Back in 2001 scientists from the areas of physics and chemistry moved into the same building in order to bring down the barriers between these research areas. At that time Nano-Science Center at University of Copenhagen was one of the first cross-disciplinary initiatives in the world.
In 2003 the center was expanded with the fields of biology, biotechnology and medicine by a transfer of researchers from Faculty of Health.
The Center is the hub of an in-depth cooperation between relevant research environments in Denmark such as the Technical University of Denmark, includning Risø-DTU. Combined with our close ties to the international research community and our cooperation with private companies, these features makes the Center a strong base for science of international excellence.
There are two Centers of Excellence at Nano-Science Center: Danish-Chinese Center for Molecular Nano-Electronics and Center for Quantum Devices, as well as 15 research groups. Read about the groups and staff by clicking the headlines in the left column.
