First-of-its-Kind Nanotechnology Center at IIT Guwahati Is Providing Advanced Infrastructure

IIT Guwahati has built advanced microelectronics and nano energy labs. Officials say the Center for Nanotechnology is the first of its kind in the Northeast. Dharmendra Pradhan, the Union Minister of Education, opened the new building last month. The Nanotechnology Center at IIT Guwahati has been set up. It will have 25 state-of-the-art labs that will be used to make progress in disciplinary, scientific, and translational research. There are plans to help at least 25 start-ups grow in the next three years.

Key Highlight:

  • IIT Guwahati has built advanced microelectronics and nano energy labs.
  • Officials say the Center for Nanotechnology is the first of its kind in the Northeast.
  • The money to build it came from the work the institute does on nanotechnology.
  • There are plans to help at least 25 start-ups grow in the next three years.
  • The Center also plans to build up the skills of highly skilled people in nanofabrication and nanoelectronics and set up a health data analytics ecosystem that includes rural health and wellness centers and a point of care testing device.

According to officials, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Guwahati, has set up new microelectronics and nano energy facilities at its Center for Nanotechnology, the first of its kind in the Northeast. They said the center, which is meant to meet future challenges and strengthen the academic-industry relationship in nanotechnology, will do multidisciplinary research in health care, nano biomaterials, tiny and small electronics, nano-energy devices, and sensors. The center is also meant to strengthen the academic-industry relationship.

They say that the institute has been working in nanotechnology since early 2000. They say that the institute has a good track record in many different areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Dharmendra Pradhan, the Union Education Minister, opened the new building last month. The money to build it came from the work the institute does on nanotechnology.

“This center has state-of-the-art facilities for nanofabrication, with class 100 cleanroom facilities being one of the main draws. It’s ready to make a big impact in nanodevices development for healthcare, renewable energy-photovoltaics, light-emitting diodes, thin-film transistors, sensors, and other areas.” “The teachers and students at this center have shown that they can do translational research, which has led to a lot of technology transfers and a few centers of excellence,” said the director of IIT Guwahati.

The Ministry of Education (MoE) helped pay for it. The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology also helped (MeitY). It will have 25 state-of-the-art laboratories that will be used to make progress in disciplinary, scientific, and translational research. It also has cleanroom facilities and state-of-the-art fabrication, characterization, and testing laboratories.

“The center wants to be not only one of the main sources of scientific and technological innovation in the country, but also in the world.” Among the main goals would be to set up world-class facilities, publish high-impact research, translational patent research, transfer technology to industry, and train highly-skilled research scholars who are ready to push the boundaries of cutting-edge science and technology. Dipankar Bandyopadhyay is a professor and the head of the Centre for Nanotechnology at IIT Guwahati.

Bandyopadhyay said that the Center for Nanotechnology’s primary goals are nano-enabled healthcare, energy harvesting, and LED prototypes, devices, and technologies. The director of the Center for Nanofabrication and Nanoelectronics said it plans to help at least 25 start-ups grow over the next three years. The Center also plans to build up the skills of highly skilled people in nanofabrication and nanoelectronics and set up a health data analytics ecosystem that includes rural health and wellness centers and a point of care testing device that was developed at the Center.
