The NANO project is a collaborative effort of researchers and students from the Physics Department at the Faculty of Exact Sciences and Technology and the Argentina’s National Research Council (CONICET) to develop and perform state-of-the-art contributions to the semiconductor nanotechnology field both locally and internationally. The team originated back in 2006 as a result of a collaboration initiative between Solid State Physics Laboratory (LAFISO) and the Dielectric Properties of Matter Laboratory (LPDM, nowadays Nanomaterials and Dielectric Properties of Matter Laboratory LNPD) members. The international framework of this association has been the Inter-American Collaboration in Materials Research (CIAM) project (New Semiconductor Nanostructures for Nanotechnology Applications). This project nucleates local scientists and students with colleagues from the Centre for Emerging Device Technologies (CEDT) at McMaster University, Canada, the Sao Carlos Institute of Physics (IFSC) at Sao Paulo University in Brazil, and the Institute for Technological Development of Chemical Industry (INTEC), Santa Fe, Argentina, and is funded by Argentina’s and Brazil’s National Research Councils (CONICET and CNPq) and Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). Additional Funding for this project comes from the National University of Tucumán Research Council (CIUNT), the Fund for Scientific and Technological Research (FONCyT) of the National Agency for the Promotion of Science and Technology (ANPCyT-Argentina) and the Nanotechnology Foundation of Argentina (FAN).
