NanoCLEAR Anti-Reflective, polymer-based nanoparticle films bond to eyeglass lenses in under an hour. Today, more than 100 national retail store systems are installing the anti-reflective film.
ElectroOptics Research Institute and Nanotechnology Center
The ElectroOptics Research Institute and Nanotechnology Center (ERINC), along with Kentucky’s Center for Nanoscale Science & Engineering (CeNSE), are making Kentucky a nanotechnology epicenter.
Unique nanoscale materials and devices are already leading to momentous advances in biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, computer science, and mathematics.
Current projects include:
- NanoCLEAR Anti-Reflective
- Nanotemplate Engineering Process
- Ultimate Eco-Car: Fuel Cells based on nanocatalysis
- Nanocomposites for radiation shielding during space flights
- Brush-on and self-assembled nano-fibers
- Nano-docking stations for fuel catalysts
- Displacement photocurrent nanostructure sensors

Promising materials and process modifications could enable hole exposure thresholds low enough to perform STP with current production steppers at economically feasible manufacturing rates.
Results showed that nerve roots altered cerebrospinal fluid dynamics in terms of velocity field, steady-streaming, and vortical structures.
ERINC and Kentucky’s Center for Nanoscale Science & Engineering collaborate on a wide variety of projects that span bio-engineering, pharmacy/medicine, nano-templates for electronics and gas sensors, and opto-electronics.
UofL is proud to be one of 16 sites to form The National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure Network. The National Science Foundation awarded membership to leading-edge facilities with nanoscale science, engineering, and technology expertise.
