Nanotechnology in the Development of Future Nano Electronics


Event Speaker: 

Meyya Meyyappan of NASA

Event Location: 

Grier 34-401

Event Date/Time: 

Wednesday, December 3, 2014 - 12:00pm

Research Area: 

Seminar is being held in Grier 34-401, please come by at 11:30am for a light lunch before the seminar begins.


Carrier transport in vacuum is the fastest and vacuum devices are inherently radiation resistant.  We have developed nanoscale vacuum transistors by entirely using silicon technology and the devices have the potential for THz electronics.  This talk will also cover our recent efforts in flexible electronics.



Meyya Meyyappan is Chief Scientist for Exploration Technology at NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, CA.  His research interests include carbon nanotubes, graphene, and various inorganic nanowires, their growth and characterization, and application development in chemical and biosensors, instrumentation, electronics and optoelectronics.  He is a Fellow of IEEE, MRS, AVS, ECS and AIChE.
