DCU Nano1The project comprises new Nano-Bioanalytical Research Building, four floors, including basement, constructed on the main Dublin City University (DCU) Campus as part of Cycle 5 of the Programme of Research for Third Level Institutes (PRTLI).

The building provides a significant infrastructural enhancement to the Faculties of Science & Health and Engineering & Computing, and facilitates new developments in emerging areas at the interface of the science and engineering disciplines. Key facilities in the building include Nanosynthesis, Nanometrology, Microfabrication and Nanobiophotonics.

The Building has significant laboratory spaces of clean room standard and includes NIST-A anti-vibration laboratories to house specialized equipment including highly sensitive atomic force microscopes, scanning electronic microscopes, lasers and optics tables.
