Nanotechnology Links has compiled links to a range of external websites to help you further extend your exploration of nanotechnology.


The following are several external sites from around the world with resources for additional information about nanotechnology.

Broad External Resources:

  • National Nanotechnology Initiative
    The National Nanotechnology Initiative consists of the individual and cooperative nanotechnology-related activities of 25 U.S. federal agencies with a range of research and regulatory roles and responsibilities.
  • Nano Science and Technology Institute
    The Nano Science and Technology Institute is chartered with the promotion and integration of nano and other advanced technologies through education, technology and business development.
  • Israel National Nanotechnology Gateway
    The Israel National Nanotechnology Initiative sets national goals and priorities and oversees programs to advance nanotechnology in Israel.
  • National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network
    The National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network ( NNIN ) is an integrated partnership of thirteen user facilities, supported by NSF, providing unparalleled opportunities for nanoscience and nanotechnology research.
  • Network for Computational Nanotechnology
    The Network for Computational Nanotechnology is funded by the National Science Foundation to support the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) by designing, constructing, deploying, and operating a cyber-resource for nanotechnology theory, modeling, and simulation.
  • is a portal about engineering and engineering careers designed to help young people understand better what engineering means, and how an engineering career can be made part of their future. 

Educational Resources:

    Online simulation and other resources for nanoscience and nanotechnology; was created by the NSF-funded Network for Computational Nanotechnology. 
  • Nanoscience and Technology Resources for Teachers
    Provided by the National Nanotechnology Initiative, this site includes networking and educational opportunities in the area of nanotechnology. 
  • Nanoscience Classroom Resources
    The National Science Foundation provides a collection of lessons and web resources aimed at classroom teachers, their students, and their students’ families.
  • Nanooze
    Nanooze is a bit fun and quirky. It’s a place created by Cornell University for kids to learn about the latest exciting stuff related to Nanotechnology. You know – that means really small things!
