BQIC: The Berkeley Quantum Information and Computation Center
This center brings together researchers from across campus (from the colleges of Chemistry, Engineering and Physical Sciences) to work on fundamental issues in quantum algorithms, quantum cryptography, quantum control and the experimental realization of quantum computers.
BSAC: Berkeley Sensor and Actuator Center
The Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center (BSAC) is the National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Center for Microsensors and Microactuators. We conduct industry-relevant, interdisciplinary research on micro- and nano-scale sensors, moving mechanical elements, microfluidics, materials, and processes that take advantage of progress made in integrated-circuit, bio, and polymer technologies.
CAB: Center for Analytical Biotechnology
COINS: Center of Integrated Nanomechanical Systems
The Center for Analytical Biotechnology (CAB) enhances technology development by promoting cross-disciplinary approaches and collaborations directed toward solving key problems in biology and medicine. CAB is led by UC Berkeley chemistry professor
Dr. Richard Mathies. One of the thrusts of the center is bioimaging and nanotechnology.
COINS is a NSF-funded Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center. COINS enables interdisciplinary invention, understanding, and construction of nanomechanical systems for personal evironmental monitoring and national security applications.
CONSRT is a DARPA-funded research center in nano-opto. CONSRT is led by Dr. Connie-Chang Hasnain, a professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. CONSRT's vision is to advance nanostructured optoelectronic materials and devices to enable breakthrough functionalities in sensing, imaging, processing and communication microsystems with greatly reduced power, size, and weight.The resulting capabilities will enable ubiquitous and intelligent autonomous platforms for environment, infrastructure and resources monitoring and control; massive information acquisition, processing and delivery; and efficient solar energy conversion.
CPL: The Cell Propulsion Lab
The UCSF/UCB Center for Engineering Cellular Control Systems is
an NIH-funded Nanomedicine Development Center.
SINAM: SINAM is the Center for Scalable and Integrated Nanomanufacturing
An NSF-funded Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center. The two main technical
goals of SINAM are: (1) the ability to do lithography below 20 nm, and (2) the ability to fabricate 3D complex nanostructures. The Center Director is Dr. Xiang Zhang, a UC Berkeley professor
of Mechanical Engineering.
WIN: Western Institute of Nanoelectronics
The University of California, Berkeley; UCLA's Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science; UC Santa Barbara; and Stanford University are teaming up to launch what will be one of the world's largest joint research programs focusing on the pioneering technology called "spintronics."
