Nottingham Nanotechnology and Nanoscience Centre

Welcome to the Nottingham Nanotechnology and Nanoscience Centre

The Centre offers co-ordinated nanotechnology resource for pure and applied research and teaching.

The NNNC hosts the new Liquid Phase Photoelectron Spectroscopy (LiPPS) machine, installed in 2013 by Kratos Analytical Ltd. The existing Kratos Analytical Ultra-2008 XPS system has also been transferred to the NNNC

The University has recognised strengths in key areas of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. This includes Single Molecule Nanoscience, Bionanotechnology, Carbon Nanostructures, Nanoparticulates, Nanopharmaceuticals and Nanoscale Assembly.
