BGU’s expertise in nanoscience is advancing water desalination, drug delivery, alternative energy, computing, and homeland security.

Manipulating the tiniest building blocks of the material world – atoms – BGU scientists are developing new materials to convert light and heat into electrical energy, and to produce lightweight cars and planes of unprecedented strength. Bulky night vision goggles are being transformed into lightweight eyeglasses. Researchers are developing incredibly small transistors to power computers, membranes for desalinating water, and nanostructures that can deliver targeted drugs to diseased cells.
