UB recruits well-known scientist to develop electronics of the future
Gottfried Strasser, a well-known Austrian researcher, joined the UB faculty six weeks ago to take advantage of a $750,000 grant from the New York State Office of Science, Technology and Academic Research (NYSTAR).
Strasser believes that his work in nanotechnology will lead to technological breakthroughs that even the most prophetic cannot foresee.
"Think about computing and the Internet. Ten to 15 years ago, many people did not have them. Nobody predicted that they would become as important as they are today," he said. "The same is true for my work with quantum dots."
The professor speculated that three technologies - quantum dots, spintronics and carbon nanotubes - will transform the electronics landscape of tomorrow.
