SRC, NIST Introduce Second Phase of Nanoelectronics Research Initiative with $5 Million in Annual Funding to Develop Post-CMOS ElectronicsPress Releases
NRI Second Phase Features Multi-University Network Focused on Research Centers at SUNY's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, University of Nebraska-Lincoln and University of Texas at Austin
GAITHERSBURG, Md. – The Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) today announced the second phase of the Nanoelectronics Research Initiative (NRI). For this phase, the SRC and NIST will provide a combined $5 million in annual funding for three multi-university research centers tasked with demonstrating, over the course of the next 10 years and beyond, a number of nonconventional, low-energy technologies that outperform current devices on critical applications.
One of President Obama’s top priorities is advanced manufacturing —the use of cutting-edge technologies to spur innovation in product development or manufacturing processes. As he said during his 2013 State of the Union address, President Obama wants to make America “a magnet for new jobs and manufacturing.” That’s why his FY14 budget includes $2.9 billion for advanced manufacturing R&D, including $1 billion to launch a network of up to 15 manufacturing innovation institutes.
Promising Organic Electronics Thin Film Materials with Simple and Low Cost Manufacturing Process
Dr. Taichi Ikeda (Senior Researcher) of the NIMS Electronic Functional Materials Group (Group Leader: Masayoshi Higuchi), Polymer Materials Unit (Unit Director: Izumi Ichinose) of the National Institute for Materials Science (President: Sukekatsu Ushioda), in joint research with Prof. Hans-Jürgen Butt group of the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (Germany), developed the world’s first supramolecular thiophene nanosheets, which is a 2-dimensional organic material with a thickness of 3.5nm.
Triennial Review of the National Nanotechnology Initiative Reiterates Need for Information Exchange, Effective Technology Transfer, and CommercializationHighlights
The National Research Council recently released its Triennial Review of the National Nanotechnology Initiative, a required assessment of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) by the 21st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act of 2003. This document makes recommendations to the Nanoscale Science, Engineering, and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee and to the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) “that will improve the NNI's value for basic and applied research and for development of applications in nanotechnology that will provide economic, societal, and national security benefits to the United States”.
