University Of Nebraska-Lincoln To Lead Researchers

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln will lead a research collaboration involving six universities and an industry consortium to develop a new generation of electronic devices.

Semiconductor Research Corp. and the National Institute of Standards and Technology have awarded a UNL team a five-year contract to lead a new Center for NanoFerroic Devices as part of the Nanoelectronics Research Initiative.

Industry experts believe silicon-based technology will reach its limit within the next decade. The new center will pursue alternatives that take advantage of nanoscale properties that require much less energy, which would allow the design and use of more compact and powerful devices.
