Nano: Tiny Science, Major Possibilities

A nanometer is only one millionth of a millimeter but the potential of research on the nano-scale is huge. Nanoscience, in turn, is a key enabling technology that revolves around the ability to see and control nature’s building blocks—atoms and molecules. The Israeli government named nanoscience a top national priority area in 2002, and Europe, the US, China, Russia and Japan followed suit.

As Israel’s nanoscience pioneer, Tel Aviv University established the Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology in 2000. Today, the Center comprises 90 research teams which have published more than 1,700 scientific papers, registered 200 patents, and provided advanced services to industrial affiliates. Recognizing the great potential of its nanoscientists, the University recently secured a $30 million gift to enable the construction of a building for its Nano Center. With construction scheduled to commence in mid-2018, TAU is actively seeking contributions to attract top researchers and equip the building’s state-of-the-art labs.


Donors who wish to sustain Israel’s leadership role in cutting-edge science should consider supporting the Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
