New NSF award in “Nanoelectronics 2020 and Beyond” to a Cornell-Princeton team
A new collaboration to advance the creation of graphene nanoribbon-based devices has been funded by a joint NSF/SRC initiative, providing $1.4M over four years. The award features a collaboration between Cornell Professors William Dichtel (Chemistry; organic synthesis) and Paulette Clancy (Chemical & Biomolec. Engr.; PI, computation) and Princeton Professor Lynn Loo (Chemical & Biological Engr.; device creation). The goal of the award is to rationally design and synthesize structurally precise graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) and incorporate them into high-performance electronic devices. Modeling and verifying GNR-GNR and GNR-surface interactions will provide important new insight into nanoscale self-assembly processes.
