Welcome to the Nanoscale and Quantum Phenomena Institute (NQPI) Web site. This Web site is devoted to disseminating and publicizing the research and activities of the institute, which is a cross-campus collaboration of scientists at Ohio University.
NQPI includes faculty from two colleges and eight departments and was formed in 2001. Since that time, NQPI has worked to promote the nanoscale science of its members. Those members work in diverse areas of nanoscience, including nanomagnetism and nanospintronics, nanoscale particles and reduced dimensionality, and nanoscience of biological molecules, among other areas. The group focuses on the use of scanning probe methods and a wide variety of other experimental tools and has a major effort in theory of nanostructure and nanoproperties.
Ohio University is the oldest university in the Northwest Territory, formed in 1804, and is located in the picturesque little town of Athens in Southeastern Ohio. Athens is an 80-minute drive from Port Columbus International Airport in Columbus, Ohio.
