The Thematic Unit of Excellence on Nanodevice Technology is a Unit funded by Nano-Mission, Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India and has started in 2012. The Unit is focused to produce the nanodevices for specific users areas and applications and in that process will develop the core technology as well as techniques which will make the unit knowledge and resource centre in the area of nanodevice technology. While the Unit will focus on immediate deliverables and would like to develop some prototype as well as proof-of-concept devices, a part of the unit will engage in new ideas and phenomena that will form the science core of next generation nanodevices technology and will thus ensure its sustainability and growth.
The project aims to build a network of scientists working in the field that can sustain these activities and foster growth in an advanced area with broad participation and will use complimentary expertise available elsewhere for attaining its objective. This network activities will connect to the existing visitor’s and associate programme of the centre.
