University makes leap with nanotechnology

Abstract:
Sabancı University in Istanbul has obtained a prominent figure for its nanotechnology department from Irvine Sensors Corp., one of the world's leading firms in nanotechnology.

Volkan Özgüz, known for his studies in the field of electronic miniaturization, has been nominated as the director of Sabancı University's Nanotechnology Research and Application Center, or SUNUM.

SUNUM will firstly prioritize agriculture as well as water and environmental cleanliness, said Özgüz. "The construction sector may also be interesting. There are also studies in medicine."

"Many experts agree that nanotechnology is the most important technology among the ones to leave its mark on the 21st century," Özgüz said. "The countries to convert their R&D studies rapidly into products in terms of health, security and living quality will affect their citizens' life significantly."
