Home > Press > King recognized for new nanoscale thermal analysis technique

Abstract:
A revolutionary product based on a nanoscale thermal analysis technique developed by William P. King, an associate professor of mechanical science and engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, has been selected as "one of the 100 most technologically significant products introduced into the marketplace over the past year," by R&D Magazine.

King recognized for new nanoscale thermal analysis technique

URBANA, IL | Posted on July 19th, 2007

Nanoscale thermal analysis enables the study of thermal properties at sub-100 nanometer resolution-50 times better than that achieved by state-of-the-art techniques. The product, made by Anasys Instruments Corp., fills a critical need in the study of polymer blends and thin films where lack of thermal analysis below a few microns in resolution has always been a major bottleneck.

King's research at Illinois focuses on nanometer-scale thermal processing, with applications in nano-manufacturing and nano-materials analysis. In 2004, King and collaborators developed a technique to use nanometer-sized heated probe tips for dip pen nanolithography (DPN), an increasingly popular technique using atomic-force microscopy probes as pens to produce nanometer-scale patterns including features too small to be formed with light-based lithography.

The R&D100 Award is the second major recognition for Anasys Instruments Corp. since its founding in 2005. As the company's scientific co-founder, King was recognized in 2006 by Technology Review magazine, which included him in its "TR35--one of people under the age of 35 whose work is most likely to change the world." The author of over 100 technical articles, he serves on the scientific advisory boards of six different companies.
