Aryabhatta Centre for Nanoscience &Technology (ACNN) under School of Engineering and Technology of Aryabhatta Knowledge University, Patna, is an Interdisciplinary super specialized, experimental new science of frontier areas of subject of 21st century. This ACNN is first cutting edge Research Centre of university of Bihar which was initiated by Department of Education, Govt. of Bihar. All together about 22 high-end research instruments such as Atomic force microscope, Scanning Tunneling Microscope, Mulfiferroic system, Vibrating sample Magnetometer etc. have been procured. M.Tech and Ph.D. programmes in Nanoscience & Technology are successfully running since year 2013. The aura of promise of Nanoscience and Technology influenced our Hon'ble Chief Minister Sri Nitish Kumar Ji and Founder Vice chancellor, Prof. S.N.Guha and he readily agreed to support the establishment of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Centre at Aryabhatta Knowledge University. At present Different affairs of Establishment, Administration and other academic, research & Devlopement programmes are in progress under the leadership of Dr. Rakesh Kumar Singh, Head (Professor incharge- Establishment, Academic and Administration). Faculty members of this research center have published papers in peer reviewed/ Impact factor/ Indexed Journals and actively involved to create a conducive atmosphere of Scientific Research/ related activities in a state Bihar and outside too. The Structural, Optical, Magnetic, Optical and Electrical Nanomaterials characterization laboratory well equipped with Wi-Fi. Thrust areas of research of ACNN are Food nanomaterials, Ferroelectric materials, Ayurvedic bhasama and nanomedicine, Magnetic nanomaterials, Ceramics, metal nanoparticles and Nano-biotechnology, Nanosilica from Rice husk(Agriculture waste) etc. Thrust areas of innovation of ACNN are Teaching through low cost/No cost experiment, Science & Technology popularization to ignite the potential of youth and Inspire for sustained growth of society. Hon’ble Vice Chancellor, Pro Vice Chancellor and Registrar and all staff member of this university have been very supportive in establishment and functioning of the Aryabhatta Center for nanoscience and nanotechnology, Aryabhatta Knowledge University.

Aims & Objectives

The challenges posed by nanoscience and nanotechnology cannot be answered solely by techniques and methods derived from a single science or technology discipline. Instead, it requires a combination of diverse, but inter-related techniques spanning many disciplines that forms the core of an emerging discipline of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
