Nanotechnology is the study of technical materials and devices on the smallest scale. Being small allows manufacturers to add more to a piece of technology than ever before. Nanotechnology involves the study of electrical materials processing, electrical characterization and transport in nanostructures. Nanostructures have applications in solar cells, efficient lighting, and high-speed transistors for smart phones and autonomous vehicle radars, biomedical implants, and more.
Some specific research areas in this field include:
