The scope of research in nanotechnology is growing at an astounding rate and leading
to new paradigms in science and engineering. Texas Tech is committed to carrying out
state-of-the-art research in nanotechnology. Areas of interest include fundamental
science and growth of advanced semiconductor materials for optoelectonics and CMOS
applications, design, fabrication, characterization and implementation of MEMS, THz,
metamaterials, plasmonics, functional materials, nanostructures, and integrated photonics.
Research is supported by Federal, State, and Industrial grants. The center supports
education programs in nanoscience, microelectronics, and MEMS.
