Nanoscience Center - The Strength of Cooperation

Nanoscience Center (NSC) at the University of Jyväskylä is an interdisciplinary research organization where physicists, chemists and biologists work together to study nature at the nanoscale. NSC forms an international scientific community with around 30 research groups and around 150 researchers, and includes several renowned scientists. Its research projects span from fundamental investigations of processes in nanoscale structures to development of commercial products.

NSC is the core unit of one of the profiling areas of the University of Jyväskylä – nanoscience. Its form combining researchers from three disciplines is unique in Finland, and worldwide there are only a few comparable organizations.

The research done within NSC can be divided based on the traditional disciplines from nanobiology to experimental and theoretical nanophysics, or based on interdisciplinary focus areas such as the laser research using spectroscopy to study nanosystems from graphene to individual molecules, or the collaboration on gold nanoparticles as markers of viruses.
