Nanoscience at Harvard

Materials Research Science and Engineering Center

The Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) at Harvard is one of eleven such centers sponsored by the National Science Foundation. The Center is the focus of interdisciplinary research at the University.

Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center

The Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC) is a collaboration among Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of California at Santa Barbara and the Museum of Science in Boston with participation by Delft University of Technology (Netherlands), the University of Tokyo (Japan), and Brookhaven National Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratory.

Center for Nanoscale Systems

The Center for Nanoscale Systems (CNS), formerly known as the Center for Imaging and Mesoscale Structures (CIMS), was created by FAS in 1999 to assist and support the research community of Harvard University researchers and collaborators.

Institute for Quantum Science and Engineering

The Institute for Quantum Science and Engineering (IQSE) aims to foster cross-disciplinary research and education in new areas at the intersection of nanoscience, atomic physics, device engineering and computer science, that in various ways seeks to apply principles of quantum mechanics to advanced technologies.

The Rowland Institute

The Rowland Institute at Harvard is dedicated to experimental science over a broad range of disciplines. Current research is carried out in physics, chemistry, and biology, with an emphasis on interdisciplinary work and the development of new experimental tools.
