  • AIT opens Nanotechnology Center of Excellence, laboratory
    promotion of public and industrial awareness of nanotechnology AIT has always adapted to changes in the past from a highly technical civil engineering to system and industrial engineering to management of environment and resources to business management and entrepreneurship and then on to high end technologies said Prof Worsak Kanok Nukulchai dean of the School of Engineering and Technology In the years to come Informatics Biotechnology and Nanotechnology have been identified by AIT as the three key focal areas to have a great potential for competitiveness and sustainable growth of countries in this region Work in the field of nanotechnology has been taking place at AIT s School of Engineering and Technology for more than three years Nanotechnology group leader Dr Joydeep Dutta said research began with limited funds and a borrowed table Even up to today the researchers have been using very basic equipment to produce some high tech results This is coffee cup technology Dr Dutta said at the laboratory s opening All our experiments are inexpensive and use simple technology but we try to do interesting things Some of the ongoing projects include tsunami early warning sensors the use of nano particles to rapidly detect bacteria and printed electronics using nanoparticle based conducting inks Nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary science and technology that requires immediate attention from diverse conventional fields of knowledge AIT President Said Irandoust said The academic diversity of this emerging field going through the entire gamut of cross disciplinary subjects require exactly the approach taken at AIT Under the agreement AIT and NANOTEC may share faculty or staff and NANOTEC will support the center at 5 million baht each per year for five years matched by AIT in cash and kind The center of excellence will be part of a nationwide network of nanotechnology centers

  • “Nanotechnology used for fingerprint checks ”
    Agency AIT is also one of Nanotec s eight centres of excellence for nanotechnology development Nanotec s director Wiwut Tanthapanichakoon said the project was to adopt nanotechnology to develop a new method to enhance the forensic fingerprint process It uses nano sized bioadhesive chitosan combined with gold nanoparticles to develop a new substance that could capture a fingerprint Fingerprints are key evidence in tracing criminals but many times forensic officials find it very difficult to get a print that has faded due to water or other problems To overcome this the development focuses on the lipid residue or fatty acid which is normally left in fingerprint marks even if it has been submerged or hit by rain Using the new substance developed with nanotechnology will assist officials to see and get the remaining print from the scene In a fingerprint around 99 per cent is sweat while 0 8 per cent is salt Only 0 2 per cent is fatty acid Wiwut said both sweat and salt were easily destroyed by the environment but not the fatty acid The research team therefore tried to find suitable substances that could interact with the fatty acid to make the lipid residue appear in the form of a fingerprint Since the lipid residue is left in very small quantities it s necessary to use nanotechnology to make the size of the substances very small so they can scatter in the small gaps of print residue he said Experiments found that the new substance could make faded fingerprint marks appear AIT and Nanotec are working on registration of a patent for the new method The new substance can now be produced at laboratory scale However Wiwut said the centre planned to work with the private sector to license the technology for mass production The
