ASU chosen to lead one of 16 NSF funded national nanotechnology sites
Arizona State University has been chosen to lead a new National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure site that will provide a Southwest regional infrastructure to advance nanoscale science, engineering and technology research. Funded by the National Science Foundation, The NNCI award has been granted to Trevor Thornton, professor in the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering. He will be the principal investigator and director of the new Nanotechnology Collaborative Infrastructure Southwest (NCI-SW).
The goals of the NCI-SW site are to build a Southwest regional infrastructure for nanotechnology discovery and innovation, to address societal needs through education and entrepreneurship, and to serve as a model site of the NNCI. The site will provide particular intellectual and infrastructural strengths in the life sciences, flexible electronics, renewable energy and the societal impact of nanotechnology.
