Notre Dame researchers awarded millions to develop radically new computers
Date:10/11/2011

Reflecting its worldwide leadership in the search for new computing technologies, the University of Notre Dame has received two of 12 prestigious grants for cutting-edge nanoelectronics research that were awarded recently by the Semiconductor Research Corporation's Nanoelectronics Research Initiative (SRC-NRI) and the National Science Foundation.

"Universities were only allowed to submit two proposals each to the program," says Peter Kilpatrick, McCloskey Dean of the College of Engineering. "The fact that both of Notre Dame's proposals were funded is a sign of the high quality and competitiveness nationally of our research in this critical field."

According to the program solicitation, the aim of the joint 12-grant program, which totals $20 million over four years, is to support the search for new technologies that can replace today's transistors. They build on previous research fostered by the SRC-NRI, which represents global computer chip manufacturers IBM, Intel, Texas Instruments, GLOBALFOUNDRIES and Micron Technology.

The two funded teams at Notre Dameled by Wolfgang Porod, Frank M. Freimann Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and director of the Notre Dame Center for Nano Science and Technology (NDnano); and Craig Lent, Frank M. Freimann Professor of Engineeringare truly multidisciplinary, bringing together electrical engineers, chemists, physicists, computer scientists and biologists to tackle problems of immense complexity.

Porod and co-investigators Gary Bernstein, Xiaobo Hu, Michael Niemier, and Gyorgy Csaba, received $1.8 million ($1.6 million from the NSF and $200,000 from the SRC-NRI) to explore a radical new approach to computational "thinking"an approach based not on the familiar binary logic of 1s and 0s, but on physics-inspired and brain-like wave activity. The research envisions a future in which computer chips contain millions of cores, and processing elements in networks model the brain's biol
