Indian Government Approves Funding for Nanotechnology Research Projects at Anna University

The Department of Science and Technology has approved a grant of Rs. 7.5 crore to Anna University for research in nanoscience and technology under the Nanoscience and Technology Initiative Programme. This is apart from the seed money already given by the State Government to the university.

A major portion of the grant, Rs. 6.5 crore, has been approved for crystal growth and characterisation of gallium nitride-based semiconductor nanostructures for light emitting diode (LED) applications. Another Rs. 1 crore has been approved for nanobiotechnology to be implemented at the Centre for Biotechnology. A sum of Rs. 35 lakhs will be used for development of carbon nanotubes at the Centre for Nanoscience and Technology.

Announcing the details, Anna University Vice- Chancellor D. Viswanathan said the Crystal Growth Centre had submitted a major proposal to the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology for developing high power and high frequency electron devices and modulators for telecommunications.
