Notre Dame Nanoscience and Technology (NDnano) promotes collaborative research in science and engineering to address unsolved scientific and technical questions with an aim to promote the greater good. Advances in imaging and characterization, multi-physics modeling, synthesis, growth, and nanofabrication are enabling breakthroughs in all science and engineering disciplines. NDnano is where Notre Dame faculty, researchers, and students meet to broaden understanding, discuss multidisciplinary research opportunities, and shape future research directions.

Request for Fellowship Proposals

The Materials Science & Engineering doctoral program at the University of Notre Dame is accepting proposals from faculty through July 15 for graduate student fellowships. With the purpose of recruiting outstanding graduate students and initiating interdisciplinary materials research that leads to external funding, the fellowships will support the stipend of one graduate student for one year. Incoming students, first-year students, and second-year students are eligible to receive the fellowship.


Apply through July 15

Engineers developing high-speed light detectors for closer look at the sun

For all that scientists have learned about the sun, plenty of unanswered questions remain about the brightest star in the sky. Advancements in solar astronomy have informed a basic understanding of the light spectrum and help predict geomagnetic storms capable of causing blackouts to electronic grid systems. Now, an interdisciplinary team of researchers at the University of Notre Dame is building a new class of fast, tunable imaging detectors with the ability to capture images of solar wavelengths invisible to the human eye.
