The JENano group is a research group founded in 2017 at the University of Johannesburg, South Africa. This team of academics. Lead by Professor Tien-Chien Jen, has dedicated itself to researching and applying innovative processes in the manufacturing market as well as others. Through its research with both local and international applications, JENano strives to both understand novel processes and introduce them to new areas and countries. Although the group studies various fields, it focuses on nanotechnology and related processes (e.g.atomic layer deposition (ALD), cold gas dynamic spray (CGDS), machining (heat pipe and manufacturing fields), renewable energy and engineering (solar, geothermal, hydrogen and hydro energy), and more.
The JENano group has research in various engineering fields such as: heat & mass transfer, renewable energy, manufacturing, mechanical design, molecular dynamics, chemical kinetics, surface modelling, prototype modelling, and experimental methodology, among other.
