Welcometo nano at James Madison University
Nanoscience is the study of the synthesis, characterization, and manipulation of materials at nanometer length scales. It is at these sizes that the properties of materials can be radically changed compared to macro- and microscopic matter. It is a highly interdisciplinary field which has emerged in the past decade at the intersection of chemistry, physics, biology, engineering and mathematics.
Faculty at James Madison University are actively involved in nanoscience teaching and research. We received a National Science Foundation Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education (NSF-NUE) grant to develop cutting edge classroom and laboratory experiences integrating nanoscience across the undergraduate curriculum. Students who have graduated from JMU have excelled in some of the top nanoscience graduate programs and high-tech companies across the country.
