Tyndall National Institute

The Tyndall National Institute (Tyndall) was created in 2004 at the initiative of the Department of Enterprise Trade and Employment and University College Cork (UCC) to bring together complementary activities in photonics, electronics and networking research at the National Microelectronics Research Centre (NMRC), several UCC academic departments and Cork Institute of Technology (CIT). The objective is to create a research institute, which would become a focal point of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in Ireland, to support industry and academia nationally and to increase the number of qualified graduate students for the ‘knowledge economy’.

The strengths of the institute at the present time lie in the area of photonics, electronics, materials and nanotechnologies and their applications for life sciences, communications, power electronics and other industries. Research programmes range from theoretical modelling and design to novel material, nanotechnology, device processing and fabrication, packaging and integration; and novel systems incorporating these new devices.

Since the foundation of Tyndall additional researchers from UCC and CIT have already become integral partners of Tyndall, in the areas of circuit design, functional nanostructures and RF systems.

As facilities expand the Institute will host researchers from across Ireland, both from academia, industry and from international research laboratories.

Since the creation of a new National Access Programme to Tyndall’s research facilities funded by SFI, partnership with other research bodies around Ireland has been greatly increased.
