Stimulus package for nanoscience, education, the arts

Abstract:
Future electronics will largely depend on something really small. It will depend on nanomaterials for building nanoelectronics.

A key component of these tiny circuits is stable nanowires that work reliably for a decade or more. Currently, however, nanowires often fail after anywhere from a few days to a few months, due to prolonged electrical stressing.

Carmen Lilley, assistant professor of mechanical and industrial engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago, is working on new procedures for making nanowires more electrically stable and therefore more reliable. She recently received a $505,532 National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Award to help advance her project.
