Welcome to the Center for Research in NanoEngineering of UPC

The Center for Research in NanoEngineering (CRnE) is a center of the Universitat Politécnica de Catalunya dedicated to research, development and innovation in the fields of micro and nanoengineering, nanotechnology and nanoscience. The center is a multidisciplinary project among different research groups of the UPC, with the objective of strengthening the work in both fundamental and applied research where nanoengineering is present.

Research topics of the CRnE includes:


  • Manipulation and dynamics study of nanoparticles for applications in electronics, communications and sensors.
  • Mechanical, electrical and electronical properties of nanodevices, nanostructures and biological systems.
  • Multiscale analysis of coupled processes: Complex system behaviour.
  • Nanoscale analysis of surfaces and reactivity.
  • Simulation and modelling of nanometric systems and nanostructured materials.
  • Fabrication, characterization and applications of micro and nanometric layers.
  • Nanometric scale fabrication and design of devices, circuits and systems.
  • Nanometric devices integration in micro and mesoscopic systems.
  • Design, preparation, and characterization of nanoparticles and their use in Catalysis.
  • Energy applications of nanoparticles and nanostructures.
  • Equipment design for obtaining, manipulate and characterise nanomaterials and nanostructures.
