The Institute for Nanoscale Technology at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS). The Institute was established in 2002 as one of four new UTS Research Institutes aligned to the national science priority areas.

Our vision is to establish UTS as a leading international player in selected key areas of nanotechnology. To achieve this objective, we have combined certain pre-existing technological strengths at UTS with new, carefully-chosen focus topics, in order to synthesise three exciting multidisciplinary nanotechnology research themes:

* optically-functional coatings and devices
* characterisation of nanoscale structures
* nano-biotechnology of proteins and lipids

The goals of these research themes have been further integrated into three interdisciplinary research initiatives: the 'Nanohouse' , the 'Nanobody' and 'Nano-equity'. These three projects interconnect individuals, departments and faculties, providing a sense of common purpose and tangible objectives.

In this site we explain a little about nanotechnology in Australia and the wider world, provide greater information about our current research projects and outline opportunities for nanotechnology study at UTS.
