Have you ever handled an atom?
Did you know that you're a nano?
Have you ever looked for the nano-world?


This is a real nanotechnology research lab open to all.
It is a place where you can understand if and how nanotechnology will change our lives and where you can discuss its potential risks and benefits.

Researchers of CIMaINa of the Università degli Studi di Milano are studying the properties of nanostructured materials. You can see them in action, meet them and have a chat.
You will have the opportunity to observe scientists at work, interact with them and discover the world of nanotechnology through nano products, interactive exhibits, audiovisual facilities and educational activities.
You are invited to come to the museum and "disturb" the researchers, to understand what is nanotechnology and express their point of view. The applications of nanotechnology research are numerous and diverse.
In the Open Nano Lab at the National Museum of Science and Technology, CIMAINA researchers will study the properties of some nanostructured materials such as titanium dioxide and carbon, determining which electrochemical reactions occur on their surface and how these processes are influenced by light. These nanomaterials can be applied in different devices: for example in photovoltaic cells for producing electricity from sunlight, in supercapacitors that store electrical energy or in cells for the production or exploitation of hydrogen.
