Student Nanotechnology Laboratories Network Set Up in Iran

Tehran, Iran | Posted on December 15th, 2014

The network consists of 42 nanotechnology laboratories for the education and training of students. The laboratories are equipped with at least eight important laboratorial devices in the field of nanotechnology that are made in Iran, including optical and electron microscopes (STM, SPM, and AFM), sputtering device, electrosonic device, electrospinning, wire electrical explosion device and so on.

The plan to establish student nanotechnology laboratories began in 2012 and seven student laboratories were equipped with nanotechnology devices by March 2013. In 2014, the equipment of student nanotechnology laboratories was done faster and the establishment of 42 laboratories began. Based on the plan, 39 nanotechnology student laboratories will start their activities by March 2015.

A budget of $1,700,000 has been allocated to this program, which has been provided by Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council, Ministry of Education and Training, and the office of Vice-President for Science and Technology.

Students of nine provinces in the country have access to nanotechnology student laboratories, and more laboratories will start work in other provinces by the end of this year.
