nt processing by the database designer. This optimization can make the data difficult for the untrained user to interpret until the user is taught to understand the database schemas and the optimizing decisions made by the database designer.

Chen seeks to solve this problem with her simple keyword search engine. Her work promises to be "tremendously useful to everyone because search engines could potentially no longer be restricted to a subset of information available in HTML," she says. The Career award will provide about $445,000 to support the research.

Harnessing carbon nanotubes

Hanqing Jiang's research promises to deepen fundamental understanding of how nano-scale structures can be made to function and improve the effectiveness of various mechanical systems on a macro scale. That knowledge will enable discoveries in nanoscience and nanoengineering to be more broadly applied in practical pursuits.

Jiang's work focuses on carbon nanotubes macroscopic assembly specifically carbon nanotube macro-films. His NSF Career award will provide about $400,000.

These macroscale structures with nanoscale details are proving highly effective in accomplishing myriad intricate technological tasks. Jiang wants to link the material properties and capabilities of carbon nanotubes to larger-scale materials and devices.

Doing that will allow engineers to harness the power of carbon nanotubes for use in conventional manufacturing operations. Learning how to better manipulate and assemble carbon nanotubes also will allow researchers to improve construction of the devices they use to achieve advances in nanotechnology. Such research could lead to the development of design guidelines for the assembly of larger-scale carbon nanotube-based networks. Those networks will expand the applications of nanotechnology in numerous areas, such as in solar cells and energy storage devices.

Jiang's work will be shared with the pub
