Research Infrastructure

Sabancı University Nanotechnology Research and Application Center

Description The Sabancı University Nanotechnology Research and Application Center (SUNUM), is developed with approximately 25 Million Euros provided by State Planning Organization and Sabancı Foundation. SUNUM has been operational since 2012. The Center provides valuable additional capabilities to the existent research infrastructure of the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences of Sabanci University. With a contributing team of 30 faculty members, about 40 post-doctoral researchers, and hundreds of Ph.D. students, the Center is engaged in highly effective multidisciplinary research programs, bringing together researchers with expertise spanning advanced materials, basic sciences, and nano-engineering, to address applications in electronics, healthcare, structural materials and construction, the environment, agriculture, food and packaging industries. The high-tech facility of the Center is designed to support cutting-edge scientific and technological research related to nanotechnologies. The unique infrastructure of the Center includes a state-of-the art, two-story, 7368 m2 building with 850 m2 clean room, 1,600 m2 for multi-disciplinary laboratories and 2400 m2 office and general use, all furnished with high tech equipment to support R&D in nanotechnologies. The building is environmentally friendly, conforming to international LEED and BREEAM standards. SUNUM is a member of NanoFutures platform and the natioanl “lighthouse”. SUNUM is in the Directory of European Nanotechnology Infrastructures. There are 12 multidisciplinary laboratories in the center: Micro/nano fabrication Lab (Class 100 clean room), Molecular Biology Lab., Material Characterization Lab., Nanoelectronics and Nanomagnetics Lab., Micro-Nano Fluidics Lab., Surface Sciences and Energy Systems Lab., Nano Packaging and Heterogeneous Integration Lab., Advanced Microscopy Lab, Micro and Nano systems Testing and Characterization Lab. 3D Design and Fabrication Lab., Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Systems Lab. These laboratories include state-of-the art fabrication and characterization equipment spanning large application areas from electron lithograhy, nanoltihography, DNA sequencing, protein analysis, Liquid, gas and mass spectroscopy, mK cryo systems, atomic resolution TEM, SEM, FIB, confocal microscopy and 3D prototyping.
