04 Jun 2008 | Workshops | Contributor(s): Timothy D. Sands
The Second Annual Birck Nanotechnology Center Research Symposium was held on
April 14, 2008 in Purdue's Discovery Park. Along with poster presentations
by graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, several areas of strength
were highlighted in the overview presentations made available here. The
first presentation by BNC director, Sands, highlights the recent
achievements of the nanotechnology community with a focus on publications as
a metric for assessing the impact of the investment in nano at Purdue [1,2].
Presentations by Professors Bergstrom, Klimeck, Janes, Murthy, and Narimanov
highlight major centers (the NSF Network for Computational Nanotechnology
and the DOE/NNSA Center for Predictive Reliability, Integrity and
Survivability of Microsystems) and research achievements of the past year in
nanoelectronics, nanophotonics and nanobiotechnology.
