NNI Supplement to the President's 2015 Budget

National Nanomanufacturing Network - March 27, 2014 - 9:08am
This document is a supplement to the President’s 2015 Budget request submitted to Congress on March 4, 2014. It gives a description of the activities underway in 2013 and 2014 and planned for 2015 by the Federal Government agencies participating in the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), primarily from a programmatic and budgetary perspective. It is based on the NNI Strategic Plan released in February 2014 and reports actual investments for 2013, estimated investments for 2014, and requested investments for 2015 by Program Component Area (PCA), as called for under the provisions of the 21st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act of 2003 (Public Law 108-153, 15 USC §7501). The report also addresses the requirement for Department of Defense reporting on its nanotechnology investments, per 10 USC §2358.

Solution Processing of ITO-Free Solar Cells

National Nanomanufacturing Network - March 27, 2014 - 4:36am
Organic solar cells (OSCs) are of interest for next-generation photovoltaic applications due to their lower costs and milder fabrication requirements relative to c-Si and thin-film devices. The power conversion efficiency (PCE) of these devices has risen to 11-12% in recent years, which is promising in order to gain market share in this competitive field. Requiring only simple spin- or dip-coating techniques, organic or polymer solar cells are an attractive low-cost technology; in recent years, there has been a focus on solution and roll-to-roll high throughput processing of OSCs to lower the fabrication costs even further.

Harnessing Silicon Nanotechnology for Medicine

InterNano - Upcoming Events - March 26, 2014 - 8:50am
April 17, 2014 - CNST Nanotechnology Seminar Series. Silicon is best known for the central role it plays in microelectronics and solar energy conversion devices. However, the same electronic and optical properties that make this semiconductor so useful for these solid-state applications can also be useful in medicine. This presentation will discuss how the properties of silicon might be harnessed for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as cancer, macular degeneration, and traumatic brain injuries. In particular, porous nanoparticles made from silicon will be discussed. The combination of both nanoscale morphology (e.g. tunable micro- and meso-pore dimensions, capacity to host and protect drugs, polymers, or nanoparticles) and nanoscale properties (e.g. photoluminescence, photonics, chemical reactivity) generates exciting opportunities not readily achieved with other materials.
