Nanoelectronics academy to open in South Bend

March 26, 2008
The University of Notre Dame will lead a new research consortium that will launch the Midwest Academy of Nanoelectronics and Architectures in South Bend, reports the South Bend Tribune. The academy will attempt to develop the next nanoscale logic device, which is a basic building block of smaller, faster computers.

The consortium includes Purdue University and several other schools, plus Argonne National Laboratory, the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory.

Financial support of more than $25 million is expected to come from the schools involved and members of the public and private sectors.

There are three other nanoelectronics research initiatives in Los Angeles; Austin, Texas; and Albany, N.Y.

Research startups that grow out of the academy's work will be launched in a technology park being planned on Notre Dame campus in South Bend.
