Congratulations to CHN Postdoctoral Research Associate Dr. Cihan Yilmaz, whose paper has been recognized as the Best Paper of the MEMS track for the 2014 International Wafer Level Packaging Conference in San Jose, CA. Dr. Yilmaz’s paper, entitled A New Manufacturing Approach for Fabricating Next Generation 3-D Interconnects for MEMS and ICs Using Directed Nanoparticle […]
A video featuring CHN’s NanoOPS technology has been posted on YouTube:
Objective: To conduct wafer level assembly of one single wall carbon nanotube for each nano electromechanical device with a high yield. Approach: Employ dielectrophoretic process to assemble SWNT dispersed in aqueous solution by employing a phase shift power source and stream line jet of N2 gas for the bridge structure of nanodevice template where the electrode […]
This research was carried out by the CHN Program at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell. Objective: This work focuses on developing a method for fabrication of highly ordered polymeric structures by direct assembly of polymer blends on chemically patterned surfaces. Broader Impact: The directed assembly of polymer blends offers an advantage over block copolymers in that […]
Objective: To achieve an effective directed assembly and transfer process using flat substrates (without trench structure). Approach: Functionalized flexible flat templates were used for directed assembly of nanoparticles. These templates elastic properties ensure a more effective nano transfer process. The template has hydrophobic/hydrophilic patterns for the convective directed assembly. Broader Impact: These processes can be applied to a […]
Jackie Isaacs, Ph.D. is Associate Director of the Center and a professor of mechanical and industrial engineering. For the past 18 months, she has also served as Acting Chair of Northeastern’s Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department. Dr. Isaacs leads the research thrust on societal implications of nanotechnology, addressing the impact and ramifications of nanomanufacturing technology. […]
Asanterabi Malima, a 2013 graduate from the Center and co-founder of Biolom, a diagnostic biosensor company, presents at the Pitch-a-thon, during which ventures had five minutes to present their business to a group of investors. For up-and-coming entrepreneurs, perhaps the most important make-or-break moment is the one when they have the opportunity to pitch their business […]
The research of Jung’s research Lab focuses on controlled synthesis, assembly, and integration of low dimensional nanomaterials for nanoelectronics, flexible devices, and biomedical applications. He is especially interested in carbon based nanomaterials such as nanotubes and graphitic structures that have well-defined atomic structures. Visit Prof. Jung’s Research Group website.
