Nanoelectronics, Nanophotonics & Nanomagnetics, Report of the National Nanotechnology Initiative Workshop

Subject Area:
NNI Workshop Reports
Author: National Nanotechnology Initiative
Publication Date: Feb. 13 2004

Description:

An NNI workshop report examining trends/opportunities in nanoscale science and engineering for electronic, photonic and magnetic technologies, held February 11-13, 2004. Report on one of a series of topical workshops convened during 2003 an 2004 by the Nanoscale Science, Engineering and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee of the National Science and Technology Council’s Committee on Technology.  All were part of the NSET Subcommittee’s long-range planning effort for the National Nanotechnology Initiative.  Experts at the event were asked to (1) develop long-term, visionary goals within topical areas and (2) identify specific barriers (or “hard problems”) inhibiting “quantum advances” toward those goals.  Workshop findings were considered by the NSET Subcommittee in preparation of the 2004 NNI Strategic Plan and for the 2007 update to that plan.


Nanotechnology Fact

The National Nanotechnology Initiative itself is not a funding program; funding is provided through the NNI member agencies. There are various mechanisms for funding research through these agencies. For detailed information on Federal funding programs, see Funding Opportunities. For grant information, see Current Solicitations. See also the list of Federal agency representatives to the NSET Subcommittee, who can help members of the research community find the appropriate mechanisms to apply for competitive funding programs.
