Nanosystems ERC for Nanomanufacturing Systems for Mobile Computing and Mobile Energy Technologies

The Nanomanufacturing Systems for Mobile Computing and Mobile Energy Technologies (NASCENT) Center aims to create high-throughput, reliable, and versatile wafer-scale and roll-to-roll nanomanufacturing systems. The transformational technologies of NASCENT include nanosculpting 2D and 3D shapes with unprecedented shape control and positioning, integration of novel nanomaterials such as graphene and nanoparticle inks, in-line optical nanometrology, and low fiscal and environmental processing costs. NASCENT will develop the machines, materials, and models required to produce nanomanufacturing systems that will enable future generation nano-enabled mobile computing and mobile energy devices. Example devices include multi-bit universal Spin Transfer Torque Random Access Memory (STT-RAM) with data densities exceeding a terabit/sq. in.; high-speed FETs on flex substrates that will provide bulk Si CMOS-like transistor performance at flat panel display-like costs; and rollable batteries with high energy density Si nanowire anodes for lithium batteries.
