Center for Nanotechnology
The center for nanotechnology is home to an array of impressive state-of-the-art equipment. Founded in 2007 by Dr. Jamal Uddin, the center is currently located on the third floor of the Science and Technology Center on the Coppin State University campus. A talented team of faculty, staff, and students conduct research at the center. Research efforts, funded by several organizations, encompass dye sensitized solar cells, terahertz technology, and biomedical application of gold nanoparticles. Funding organizations include Constellation—an Exelon company, Department of Education (Safra Title III Grant) TEDCO, Department of Defense, and the University System of Maryland. The center has received recognition and awards for research findings, which have also been published in several highly regarded peer-reviewed journals such as Nature Scientific Reports and Inorganic Chimica Acta. The research team periodically undertakes field trips, attends, and organizes conferences and workshops annually.
For the seventh time in a row (2011-2017), the center for nanotechnology has been awarded the Constellation’s E2 Energy to Educate grant. A total amount of $280,000 has been received. The project funded this year is titled “educating High School and College Students on the types, characteristics, construction, working, and application of Fuel Cells.”
