Center of Excellence on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

Research Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (RCNN), Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) is one of the most recent Research Centers established by ITB in order to response modern complex challenges as well as to reaffirm a strong commitment always involves in research, development and application of frontier science and technology for the betterment of Indonesia. There are 4 research laboratories in RCNN (nanomaterial, nanomedicine, nanobiotechnology, and nanodevice), each headed by faculty member, with 25 faculty members and more than 100 students actively engaged in education, research and community services. Supported by state-of-the-art equipment, such as High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy (HRTEM), Focus Ion Beam (FIB), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), our activities may cover wide spectrum areas of science and engineering disciplines. Nevertheless research and educational activities in RCNN is emphasized on energy, health, and food related subject areas. For the next five years, RCNN activities are directed toward achieving national center of excellence status and as such key performance indicators are streamlined to the guidelines given by the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education (MRTHE). Last but not least, RCNN also believes that significant contributions to the society will never be achieved in void and hence RCNN welcomes synergetic collaborations for mutual benefit.
