NTNU NanoLab is a cross facultary, strategic initiative with the objective to coordinate and promote nanoscience and nanotechnology at NTNU. The initiative is driven by NTNU in close collaboration with SINTEF.
Nanotechnology is, by virtue, cross disciplinary. For this reason, NTNU NanoLab aims to facilitate a collaborating research environment for scientists within the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, electrical engineering, materials technology and medical research. The research environment spans over several departments distributed at five faculties at NTNU: the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Technology, the Faculty of Information Technology, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering, the Faculty of Engineering Science and Technology, the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Humanities.
Today, there are more than 70 permanent employees with research interests towards areas were nanotechnology and nanoscience plays an important part. In order to offer the necessary, modern facilities for research within this field, NTNU NanoLab has established a state-of-the art cleanroom infrastructure.These laboratories are open to students and scientists at NTNU and SINTEF as well as external researchers.
NTNU NanoLab is also the leader of the "Norwegian Micro- and Nanofabrication Facility" , NorFab.
NorFab hereby announces support to cover running costs for work performed within the cleanrooms of NTNU NanoLab, UiO MiNaLab, SINTEF MiNaLab and HBV IMST-Lab in 2015.
Full announcement text and application form is given on NorFab's homepage.
Grey Goo Symposium
NTNU, 11 Februar, 2015
The event is a collaboration between NTNU NanoLab, the study council program in nanotechnology and Timini. Timini is the student association for nanotechnology at NTNU. Students from other institutions and programmes coming from a similar field, is also invited.
Grey Goo is a hypothetical end of the world scenario first named by Eric Drexler in 1986. The scenario is about molecular nano robots where self replication get out of control and consume everything on Earth.
