Nanoscale Science and Technology is emerging as a frontier of research and development in natural sciences and engineering

Welcome to the Tel Aviv University Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology


The Tel Aviv University Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary research center, committed to advancing society by conducting cutting edge research and developing state of the art technologies, by engaging in close cooperation with TAU research community, industry and society. Established already in 2000, we pioneered Nanotechnology in Israel and since then we are a leading Nanocenter in Israel.


Two disciplinary centers combine to form the center:

  • The Chaoul Center for Nanoscale system
  • The Wolfson Applied Materials Research Centre


Chaoul Center offers services of nanoscale development, fabrication and characterization - the foundation for all experimental work at the nanoscale. Its cutting-edge equipment and professional support enable researchers to manufacture full-process prototypes of their miniscule inventions, and then test their various properties - electrical, optical, mechanical, chemical and/or biological, consequently optimizing these characteristics for important uses and applications.


We also promote hands-on use of our devices and facility by both TAU researchers and external customers, providing them with professional guidance and training for work with the various devices.


Wolfson Centre main goal is to make its analytical capabilities available to all the research groups in Tel-Aviv university, in all other universities, and to Israeli industry, both by providing professional services and by undertaking joint projects.


The Centre's features include state-of-the-art analytical tools, comprehensive characterization systems under one roof, highly professional staff members backed by eminent professors in diverse areas of materials science, and a central, accessible location.


Our Missions

  • Enable advanced R&D capability and state-of-the-art technologies of both fabrication and characterization.
  • Promote multidisciplinary research activities and expand research infrastructure resources on campus.
  • Manage core central equipment facilities.
  • Support the recruitment of outstanding researchers.
  • Promote international collaborations with leading Universities around the world.
  • Launch educational programs for young researchers and for the public.
  • Collaborate with the Israeli industry and contribute to the country’s technology evolution.


About Nanotechnology

  • Nanoscale Science and Technology are emerging as a frontier of research and development in natural sciences and engineering. This field encompasses the art and wisdom of forming artificial nanometric sized structures with atomic precision, their characterization and utilization for studying new phenomena and for conceiving novel devices and systems unattainable with conventional technologies.


  • By its very nature, research in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology calls for truly interdisciplinary efforts, exploiting physical, chemical, biological and medical sciences, together with extraordinary engineering expertise. All of these traditional disciplines virtually loose their identity when dealing with nanoscale systems.
