The Centre for Nanoelectromechanical Systems (NEMS) and Nanophotonics works in close collaboration with the Departments of Biotechnology and Mechanical Engineering to carry out research and development, and is one of the most successful Interdisciplinary Research Programmes (IDRPs) by the Institute. The CNNP involves faculty members from several departments across the institute and caters to researchers from IIT Madras as well as outside.
The Centre has 5000 sq ft of Clean Room space and several sophisticated processes and characterisation equipment. Research at CNNP involves both technology and modelling, and is in the areas of silicon photonics, biosensors, RF and optical MEMS, GaN HEMT, organic electronics, diffractive optical elements, ultrasonic nanoscopy, microfluidics.
