Coordination of nanometrology in Europe (CO-NANOMET)

Nanotechnology has the ability to become the most promising technology advance for the 21st Century. It offers a huge potential of applications and economic benefits, which may contribute to the European economy. Scientifically and economically, nano-metrology is an indispensible part for nanotechnology which must develop hand in hand with the developments of nano-science and –technology. The programme of work set out in this project will address the need within Europe to develop the required measurement frame to successfully support the development and economic exploitation of nanotechnology. A pan-European coordinated response to the emerging needs of nanotechnology defined required from the National Metrology Institutes to provide a suitable measurement framework for the effective commercial development of nanotechnology. To address this requirement a European Strategy Plan for Nanometrology will be delivered in consultation with key stakeholders. 5 European Action Groups in Nanometrology will be implemented to address the need to put in place a process chain for the dissemination of metrology techniques as well as traceability to national standards and internationally harmonised standard methods specific to the particular nanotechnology area addressed. Educational programmes addressing nanometrology across Europe will be reviewed, a future training needs analysis completed and recommendations for training curricula made. Training will be provided in basic nano metrology concepts as well as standardisation. European capabilities review will be completed and a directory published. Exisitng and future requirements for large infrastructures as well as capbility gaps will be assessed. Traceability and metrology in industry will also be addressed. This project will take input from a range of stakeholders including National Metrology Institutes, research institutes, industry, regualtory and standards bodies as well as the EC.


Production and characterization of boron nitride nanotubes
Özmen, Didem; Sezgi, Naime Aslı; Department of Chemical Engineering (2008)
The further developments in nanotechnology in last few years provide usage of nanoscale particles for many applications in various areas such as electronics, pharmaceutical, and biomedical due to their strengthened mechanical, thermal and electrical properties. Boron nitride nanotubes are a good example of nanoparticles. In this study, boron nitride nanotubes were successfully synthesized from the reaction of ammonia gas with mixture of boron and iron oxide. Physical and structural properties of the synthes...

The evolution of a new technology depends upon a good theoretical basis for developing the technology, as well as upon its experimental validation. In order to provide for this experimentation, we have investigated the creation of a software testbed and the feasibility of using the same testbed for experimenting with a broad set of technologies. The testbed is a set of programs, data, and supporting documentation that allows researchers to test their new technology on a standard software platform. An import...
Enthralling the impact of engineered nanoparticles on soil microbiome: A concentric approach towards environmental risks and cogitation.

Nanotechnology is an avant-garde field of scientific research that revolutionizes technological advancements in the present world. It is a cutting-edge scientific approach that has undoubtedly a plethora of functions in controlling environmental pollutants for the welfare of the ecosystem. However, their unprecedented utilization and hysterical release led to a huge threat to the soil microbiome. Nanoparticles(NPs) hamper physicochemical properties of soil along with microbial metabolic activities within rh...
Technology Education In Preschool An Applied Sample Lesson
Turgut, Gökben; Tunga, Yeliz; Kışla, Tarık (2016-01-01)
Science and technology is rapidly changing and developing in our ages. Human knowledge is being renewed and changed every day. This situation makes technology integration which accelerates accessing information into educational systems inevitable. Developing ICT skills of children starting from early ages gains importance considering the fact that those skills support the ability and attitude to use electronic media their future lives. For this reason, European Union gave a significant place to education of...
Assessing Information Technology Use in Organizations: Developing a Framework
Sezgin, Emre; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi (2011-10-07)
Increasing use of current and developing information technologies (IT) within business and production processes is a required transformation to survive in the market. However. IT should be well-managed to be adapted by an organization as a whole. This study proposes a new model for the assessment of IT use in organizations. The aim is to assist decision making processes in information technology management through exploring strength and weaknesses of organization on IT tools and applications. The model has ...
