NSF supports nanomanufacturing study

OzkansAssociate Professors Cengiz Ozkan and Mihri Ozkan are principal investigator and co-principal investigator on a National Science Foundation (NSF) sponsored project on nanomanufacturing, for next generation devices based on nanotubes, nanowires and biological linkers.

Titled “Massively Parallel Assembly of Nanowires and Nanotubes on a Chip for Nanoelectonics and Circuits,” the project addresses the fact that the scaling down of silicon-CMOS (Complimentary metal-oxide-semiconductor) integrated circuits is reaching its physical limitations. Bio-inspired assembly, which looks at how Mother Nature does things, is one of the main objectives of this work. It is a revolutionary approach that could have a major technological impact on computing, storage and display applications.

Dr. Ozkans' student assistants trained on this project will be well-positioned to pursue careers in academia and in the semiconductor, display and storage industries.
