is open to all departments at Yale University, as well as to our colleagues

Yale Institute for Nanoscience and Quantum Engineering (YINQE) is a
new initiative at Yale University intended to develop collaborations
among disparate scientific disciplines centered on nanoscale research
projects. YINQE builds on existing research strengths in engineering,
and the physical and life sciences to broaden the interdisciplinary
activity among faculty and students across the entire campus. Several
dozen Yale faculty are already involved with YINQE, and more will be
with several existing and planned Centers at Yale, the Institute provides
improved nanomaterials synthesis capabilities, together with centralized
shared characterization and powerful computational facilities. These
facilities are supported by a dedicated technical staff and located
in close proximity to Yales state-of-the-art MRSEC laboratories,
microelectronics clean room, and parallel computational facilities.
World class laboratories belonging to YINQE researchers are also housed
in the new Yale Chemistry Research Building and the Anlyan Center at
the Yale School of Medicine.
areas of our initial focus are: electronics, photonics, biomedical technology,
nanoparticle synthesis, interfacial chemistry and quantum engineering.
To enhance interdisciplinary research and stimulate new research opportunities
that the Institute can enable, the Institute will administer and fund
seed research projects, and will facilitate and coordinate interdisciplinary
research proposals to external funding agencies.

of the Yale Institute for Nanoscience and Quantum Engineering is to
develop collaborations centered on nanoscale research projects among
those in a variety of scientific disciplines, in order to make substantial
advances in understanding and technology.
aims to place Yale among the worlds leaders in nanoscale research
and applications by strengthening existing areas of excellence and providing
new physical and intellectual capabilities that will nucleate new collaborations
and research dimensions.
A key thrust
of the YINQE is to strengthen links between physical scientists and
engineers and the medical, biological and biochemical research communities.
This has begun with a series of seminars, workshops and other outreach
activities aimed at increasing internal communication and broadening
collaborative interactions both inside and outside of Yale. YINQE will
also solicit, select and support seed research projects
to assist faculty in creating and nurturing new collaborative research
involving various disciplines.
