Growth Areas for Flex Electronics Start-Ups

National Nanomanufacturing Network - March 10, 2016 - 2:48pm
WebinarWednesday, March 23, 2016 - 11:00pm Join FlexTech and Lux Research's Tony Sun in a free webinar on business strategies that are working for growing flex electronics start up companies. Tony will focus on information uncovered at the recently-held 2016FLEX event in Monterey, California. His talk on "Don't be the next Blackberry" highlighted how some companies get caught flat-footed as technology changes and use cases change and don't make it up the next growth curve. The webinar will kick off with a few highlights and short recap from the recent event from moderator and FlexTech Senior Director, Heidi Hoffman.

Quantum Nanostructures and Nanofabrication Group

National Nanomanufacturing Network - February 10, 2016 - 1:43pm
The frontier of electronic and photonic devices lies in nanoscience and nanotechnology research. At the nanoscale, materials and structures can be engineered to exhibit interesting new properties, some based on quantum mechanical effects. Our research focuses on pushing nanofabrication technology to the few-nanometer length-scale by using charged-particle beams combined with self-assembly. We use the technologies we develop to push the envelope of what is possible with photonic and electrical devices, focusing in particular on the nanowire-based superconductive photodetectors.
