DTU Nanotech


DTU Nanotech is a department at DTU, dedicated to conduct research, education and innovation within micro- and nanotechnology at the highest international level. Being an active player in close to 100 collaborative research projects of which many includes national and international leading companies and institutions, DTU Nanotech has a high degree of external cooperation, urging our professionalism and our competencies to the forefront. We promote academic excellence by fostering a team-based scientific environment building on the passion, talent and skills of our international and cross-disciplinary staff. DTU Nanotech has around 215 people on its staff of which 80 are PhD students and with 40 % international employees the department constitutes an international environment. At DTU Nanotech, we exploit sciences across the traditional boundaries of technology enabling innovative solutions for the benefit of society. Micro- and nanotechnology is applied within the biomedical, life sciences, environment, energy, security, and sensing areas. DTU Nanotech is the main user of DTU Cen, state of the art center for electron microscopy, and of DTU Danchip, state of the art cleanroom on a global level. Access to these facilities together with our own research infrastructure provides us with a unique position within the international and Danish micro- and nanotechnology scene of both research and education. Research The research at DTU Nanotech is coordinated in 4 strategic research fields, namely: Biomedical Engineering and Life Science (covering e.g. biomaterials, nanomedicine and tissue and cellular engineering), Sustainable Nanotechnology (covering e.g. solar cells, water quality monitoring and explosives detection), Lab-on-a-chip (covering e.g. pumps, sensors, bonding and surface modification), and Materials and fabrication (covering e.g. silicon microfabrication, polymer microfabrication and new materials e.g. graphene).
