The Center of Excellence in Nanotechnology (COEN) at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) offers students a key that opens the door to opportunity. COEN also offers researchers and academics from other universities and institutes a wonderful place to study and teach. Nanotechnology is an important emerging technology. It is highly interdisciplinary in that chemists, biologists, physicists and engineers all work together to create amazing new materials with remarkable properties and to develop devices that change the way we live. Since nanotechnology cuts across industrial sectors, nanotechnology has already contributed in many ways – e.g. cell phones with less than 20 nm transistors, stronger materials with carbon nanotubes, water repellant surfaces with ZnO nanorods, anti-cancer hyperthermic therapeutics with magnetic nanoparticles, medical imaging with quantum dots, smart farming with encapsulated fertilizers, water desalinization with layer-by-layer ionic structures, high capacity batteries with lithium ion-nanocarbons, solar cells with broad spectral acquisition and more and more.

We have access to the latest analytical equipment including transmission and scanning electron microscopes, x-ray diffraction, BET analysis, various spectroscopies and thermal analysis methods. COEN is but a mere 1 km south of Thailand’s Science Park and our partners NANOTEC, BIOTEC, NECTEC and MTEC, Thailand’s government laboratories for nanotechnology, biotechnology, electronics and materials respectively. We are located in Pathumthani province about an hour north of Bangkok on a beautiful campus placed in a serene setting. Please consult with our image gallery to see for yourself. Therefore, if you have a background in chemistry, biology, physics or engineering, join us in our exciting trek into the future. Develop something now and tomorrow that will make an impact. The Center of Excellence in Nanotechnology can show the way for you.
