June 13-14: Nanosensor Manufacturing Workshop

| May 24, 2017

Nanosensor Manufacturing Workshop: Finding better paths to Products.

The Nanosensor Manufacturing Workshop supports the goals of the Nanotechnology for Sensors and Sensors for Nanotechnology Signature Initiative (NSI).This event will identify key research elements needed to achieve production-scale manufacturing of nanotechnology-enabled sensors. Through plenary presentations and panels, the first day of the workshop will survey the ecosystem for taking a nanosensor from the research lab to production and examine important issues related to manufacturing, such as fabrication, testing, and product performance. The second day of the workshop will include an interactive “scrimmage,” in which participants will walk through a hypothetical scenario, such as engaging a contract manufacturer in producing a sensor. Workshop attendance will be limited to encourage robust discussion, and participants will be invited from a wide range of sectors and application areas. The event will be webcast for those who are unable to attend in person. The workshop will culminate in a publicly available report and may inform future research priorities for achieving scalable manufacturing and commercialization of nanosensors.This workshop will be held from June 13-14, 2017 at the National Science Foundation, Arlington, Virginia

Dr. Busnaina will be participating in this event as a speaker on Tuesday, June 13 from 10:20 to 10:40

The webcast will be available at this link during the workshop.
