Nanoelectronics Center at UT Austin receives $7.8 million grant
Date:6/12/2013

at seven universities: The University of Texas at Austin, The University of Texas at Dallas, Texas A&M University, North Carolina State University, Harvard University, Stanford University and University of California at San Diego. UT Austin professors Leonard F. Register, Emanuel Tutuc, Rodney S. Ruoff and Deji Akinwande from the Cockrell School, and Allan MacDonald from the College of Natural Sciences are collaborating on the project.

The researchers are working on nanoelectronics architecture and two-dimensional materials, such as graphene, to solve the need for energy-efficient transistors for mobile computing and other technologies.

Today, electronics consume a substantial portion of worldwide energy, and that use is expected to grow. Electronic devices account for about 15 percent of household electricity consumption, and more than half of the global population subscribes to a mobile phone service, according to the International Energy Agency, an independent agency made up of 28 member countries.

SWAN was one of three centers created in 2006 by SRC-NRI with the intention of finding a replacement to conventional metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistors.

Additionally, the Texas Emerging Technology Fund has provided significant funding for SWAN, playing an instrumental role in establishing SWAN's infrastructure and enabling it to realize its vision through a $10.5 million grant. Since its inception, SWAN has received a total of $36.7 million from SRC-NIST, the state of Texas and the University of Texas System.

NRI 2.0 is the successor to an earlier multiyear collaboration between NRI and NIST that focused on the long-term goal of developing the next logic switch, or the basic logic elements that serve as the building blocks of electronics devices.

SRC is the world's leading university-research consortium for semiconductors and related technologies. The Nanoelectronics Research Corporation, a subsi
