At the University of Wisconsin Center for NanoTechnology, our staff of physicists, biochemists and engineers develop novel technologies with a wide range of applications - from making integrated circuits to genes.

Our cross-disciplinary center is a leader in basic scientific research. With grounding in several UW departments, we are able to accelerate our research into practical applications, leading to academic and industrial collaborations.

The UW Center for NanoTechnology merges engineering principles with biological research. Our study of photolithography supports the construction of smaller and smaller circuits, as well as controlled environments for analyzing cell and protein interactions. Our work in creating patterns at the nanoscale using extreme ultraviolet, electron beam and x-ray lithography will eventually lead to new processes in the computer chip industry.

We are exploring several applications of photolithography to the study of biological processes. Our automated gene synthesizer promises huge advances in genomics, such as producing customized genes in a matter of hours, constructing siRNA libraries and detecting SNPs.
