SRC, NIST intro second phase of nanoelectronics research initiative

USA: Semiconductor Research Corp. (SRC) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have announced the second phase of the Nanoelectronics Research Initiative (NRI).

For this phase, SRC and NIST will provide a combined $5 million in annual funding for three multi-university research centers tasked with demonstrating non-conventional, low-energy technologies that outperform current technologies on critical applications in 10 years and beyond.

The second phase of NRI also features joint projects with the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the multi-university research network involves 34 universities in 17 states. The three research centers are:

* the Institute for Nanoelectronics Discovery and Exploration (INDEX) at SUNY’s College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE);
* the Center for Nanoferroic Devices (CNFD) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln; and
* the South West Academy of Nanoelectronics (SWAN) 2.0 at the University of Texas at Austin.
