The Centre for Nano Science and Engineering (CeNSE) was established in 2010 to pursue
interdisciplinary research across several disciplines with a focus on nanoscale systems. Current
research topics include, but are not limited to nanoelectronics, MEMS/NEMS, nanomaterials
and devices, photonics, nano-biotechnology, solar cells and computational nano-engineering. Apart from the regular faculty members at CeNSE, almost 40 faculty members from different
departments at IISc are associated in the academic and research activities at the centre. The
centre offers PhD programs in a wide range of areas, and has close interactions with the
industry. A state-of-the art nanofabrication facility with a clean room spanning 1400 square meters
is located at the centre. In addition, there are several characterization labs that cater to material,
electronic, mechanical, chemical and optical characterization.
Important Note : CeNSE does not support MTech projects from other institutes. Students are advised not to send emails to the faculty members with requests of carrying out their MTech projects at the centre.
A deeper and thoughtful exploration of the nano-world for the common good of humanity is the singular goal of our Centre. We are indeed fortunate to have established this Centre at the right time and in the right place.
