Welcome to YNJC

York-Nanjing Joint Centre (YNJC) for spintronics and Nano Engineeering is based on the leading research of both universities in the areas of spintronics, photonics, electron microscopy, magnetism, nanomaterials and semiconductors nanodevices. The Centre was commissioned by York's Vice-Chancellor Professor Brian Cantor and Nanjing's President Professor Chen Jun in 2008. There have been extensive exchange visits of students and staff, organisation of international conferences and joint scientific publications in high impact journals. The Centre has attracted funding from the government research councils, the industries and international organisations.
YNJC aims to promote collaborations between York and Nanjing and with our international partners and to create innovative opportunities for scientific research, education and industry with nanoscience and nanotechnology.
