BANGALORE: Veeco Instruments Inc., a nanoscience instrumentation supplier, has opened a nanotechnology center in Bangalore.

The Veeco-India Nanotechnology Laboratory will be jointly operated along with Jawaharlal Nehru Center for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR).

The laboratory located at JNC in Jakkur near here, will have scientists and engineers and will be equipped with Veeco's latest atomic force microscope, scanning tunneling microscope products and other nanotechnology application modules.

According to Prof. C.N.R. Rao, honorary president of the JNCASR, “Nanotechnology and nanoscience are important opportunities for India. The Indian government has made major allocations for nanotechnology between 2002 and 2007. A nanoscience initiative of the Department of Science and Technology that began in 2003 has identified and is working with more than 30 R&D institutions to identify prospective nanotechnology products that can be commercialized.”
