New lab aims to put Florida on the nanotech map

On Monday, Florida International University's College of Engineering inaugurated the Motorola Nanofabrication Research Facility, intended to catapult FIU into the realm of universities delving into nanotech. "We're talking world-scale revolution," said FIU President Modesto "Mitch" Maidique, who has a doctorate in physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an extensive background in the semiconductor industry. The nanotechnology center also symbolizes the kind of high-skill, tech-driven jobs that will create a more affluent Florida in the future, said Gov. Jeb Bush in his dedication remarks.
