Institute of Surface and Interface Science

ISIS, the Institute For Surface and Interface Science, is the home of nanoscience on the University of California, Irvine (UCI) campus.  More specifically, ISIS is one of 16 Organized Research Units (ORUs) on the UCI campus.

The main point is that in nanoscience, intellectual and physical economies of scale are present.

The Institute For Surface and Interface Science (ISIS) is a consortium of physicists, chemists, engineers, and biologists with common research interests in nanoscience.  ISIS exists to do excellent research in nanoscience.
