Directed self-assembly of vertical nanotubes for biosensors, logic, nano-biofuel cells
Date:12/10/2010

"Directed Self-Assembly of Vertical Nanotubes for Biosensors, Logic, and Nano-Biofuel Cells," will be the focus of NJIT's exhibit today at the National Nanotechnology Innovation Summit 10 http://www.nsti.org/events/NNI/, at the Gaylord Center in Washington, DC. The event celebrates the 10th anniversary of the national nanotechnology initiative.

NJIT was the only university in New Jersey selected for this exposition featuring practical applications of nanoscience resulting from the last decade of federal funding under the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI).

On view are four nanotech projects, each one illustrating innovative and practical approaches to creating structured, functional devices at molecular scales. The projects are based upon the work of NJIT Research Professors Reggie Farrow and Zafar Iqbal http://chemistry.njit.edu/people/iqbal.php. The US Department of Defense provided support for the work.

Project titles are: Directed Self-Assembly of Vertical Single Wall Carbon Nanotubes; Nano-Bioprobe Array for Subcellular Electrophysiology; Nanoscalable Enzymatic Biofuel Cells; Carbon Nanotube 3D Integrated Circuits. To receive by email a copy of a technology brief detailing each project, contact Judith Sheft, associate vice president of technology development, sheft@njit.edu: 973-596-5825.

Throughout today, Farrow and NJIT Senior Vice President for Research and Development, Donald H. Sebastian will be available for questions and information.

"The progress in nanotechnology has been astounding in transforming scientific understanding to practical device technology over the last decade," said Sebastian. "It is an honor for our researchers to be recognized as leaders working at the forefront of the field, harnessing nano-science to produce revolutionary approaches to electronics and medical device technologies."

The summit features the cooperative nanotech-related activities of 25 federal agencies focused on producing revolutionary and transformative technological breakthroughs. It brings together the nation's leadership in nanotechnology research, development, implementation, policy and finance along with a showcase of the top nanotechnology applications generated through NNI support.

The three-day program includes: the Nanotechnology Innovation Showcase, presenting the nation's top transformational technologies in development for commercialization; dynamic speakers and panelists on topics such as bringing disruptive technologies to market, scaling and financing energy technology, views from the White House and Capitol Hill, building regional clusters and more.
