Nanotechnology is a new paradigm where human capability is extended to manipulate, control and manufacture matter with atomic and molecular precision (10-9 meter). In order to achieve the capability to control nature at nanometer dimensions, we must develop our understanding on the behavior and phenomena of matter at such level, which is the scope of nanaoscience.
Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Research Center (NNRC) is a multi-department center that organizes the Nanotechnology research activities in Razi University and will conduct Graduate study programs to train students with multidisciplinary knowledge around Nanotechnology. NNRC intends to be the hub of Nanotechnology in the west of the country and has the mission of promoting Nanotechnology in the university and in the west of Iran by providing a network of researchers from various disciplines and supporting activities that are related to Nanotechnology.
NNRC was founded in 2006 as an independent research center in Razi University after about two years of study on its mission and organization and now includes faculty members from Physics, Chemistry, and Chemical Engineering Departments.
