Micro/Nano Technology and Molecular Engineering
Micro- and nano-technology and molecular engineering research are concerned with the design and testing of microdevices which can affect the behavior of individual molecules or systems of molecules to perform specific functions. The nature of molecular interactions allows for an innumerable amount of potential applications.
