Hear live webcast tonight of top NJIT awardee detailing future of nanotechnology
Date:10/6/2011

NJIT Electrical Engineering Professor Haim Grebel, who will be honored tonight by NJIT for his research, will speak in a free, live webcast about the future of nanotechnology and his research. The event, NJIT's most important research honor, culminates in the award of a $10,000 research prize to Grebel.

The live webcast will be available to viewers and listeners from starting at 5:30 p.m. ET. Viewers from throughout the world may tune in to hear and see Grebel from 5:50 -- 6: 15 p.m. when he takes the podium to highlight aspects of his work with and the future uses of nanotechnology. To view the live webcast, please visit http://www.njit.edu/ and click the button prominently featured in a banner on the homepage entitled "The Edge in Research." The event will end about 6:30 p.m. ET.

Grebel's talk will highlight a platform he has developed which uses nanotechnology to detect viruses. He'll also touch upon creating nano circuits using carbon nanotubes, nanotechnology for corrosion protection and the future of artificial structures using nanotechnology.

The New Jersey Institute of Technology Excellence in Research Prize and Medal is awarded annually by the NJIT Board of Overseers. This year will be the fourth annual presentation.

Grebel's work has produced four patent awards, more than 90 scholarly papers and a dozen plus invited presentations. The Department of Defense, National Science Foundation and NASA have supported his work.

This November, Grebel will speak at the annual conference of the Society of Glycobiologists in Seattle. http://www.glycobiology.org/AnnualConference/GeneralInformation/tabid/55/Default.aspx He'll discuss the detection of human and avian flu viruses using graphene-coated infrared platforms. Glycobiologists study sugars and the roles they play in biology.

The deposition of graphene on various substrates and its implications for spectroscopic analysis has long been a focal point of Grebel's work. Graphene, a two-dimensional carbon crystal that is a single atom thick, can be rolled into nanotubes which are one nanometer in diameter. Graphene and carbon nanotubes take researchers into structures that originated in the laboratory. The unique properties of graphene and carbon nanotubes could lead to extraordinarily small and fast transistors, flexible flat-screen displays and solar panels, and batteries with the integral capacity to replenish their charge from solar energy, said the NJIT scientist.
