The Centre for Nano Science and Engineering (CeNSE) was established in 2010 to pursue interdisciplinary research on the nanoscale. Topics of interest include, but not limited to materials, electronics, MEMS/NEMS, photonics, biotechnology, and solar cells. If you have an exciting and revolutionary idea, come talk to us. We welcome both academic and industry collaborations.
CeNSE houses a state-of-the art national nanofabrication centre (NNfC) with 14000 square feet of class 100/1000 clean room. It also houses a comprehensive micro nano characterization facility (MNCF) to conduct virtually any type of electrical, optical, mechanical and material characterization. Both of these are national user facilities are accessible to outside researchers for very reasonable charges.
CeNSE faculty has 15 core members and more than 40 associate members from various IISc departments. The CeNSE family also includes 142 students, around 25 project associates, 55 technical staff, and 29 support staff. We also host over 150 researchers from outside academic institutions, governmental and industrial research labs every year, so that they can use our facilities.
The centre offers PhD and M.Tech programs in Nanoelectronics
