    areas that are ripe for significant advances through close interagency collaboration gives us a glimpse of future plans although few program details are presently available The topics are nanoelectronics sustainable nanomanufacturing and solar energy Six agencies have committed a total of 51 M to the Nanotechnology Applications for Solar Energy Initiative in support of the Administration goal of generating 10 of our nation s electricity from renewable sources by 2012 and 25 by 2025 As NanoBusiness Alliance members well know nanotechnology is expected to be a major factor in the widespread commercialization of solar energy with great prospects for cost reduction efficiency improvements and optimizing use of precious materials It will be interesting to see how this initiative encourages the incorporation of nanoscale materials and devices in both photovoltaic and concentrating solar power systems the stated goals run the full gamut from improved understanding of the underlying science through characterization of prototypes and on to economical manufacturing Sustainable Nanomanufacturing gets an initiative of its own with five participating agencies and 23 M committed to date The emphasis is on self assembled systems a k a the bottom up approach to nanotechnology This is a long term initiative with a first decade goal to manufacture on the industrial scale systems of relatively limited complexity from engineered nanoparticles A whole host of high impact applications are mentioned high speed communication and computation solar energy harvesting waste heat management and recovery energy storage but the real emphasis is on developing general manufacturing techniques and then applying them to increasingly complex systems The inclusion of sustainable in the title and the participation of the Environmental Protection Agency tips us off that lifecycle analysis of the materials and processes up to and including recycling or reclamation will be expected The final signature initiative Nanoelectronics for 2020 and Beyond starts with a 55 M commitment from five agencies This effort shares the basic goals of the Nanoelectronics Research Institute the current NNI partnership with the Semiconductor Research Corporation to develop robust U S capabilities for manufacturing novel electronic technologies which will take the computing and communications industries beyond the end of the CMOS roadmap It will expand ongoing NNI R D in several areas alternatives to charge based information processing combined nanophotonic nanoelectronic systems nanotech approaches to quantum information science and carbon based electronics devices such as nanotube transistors or this year s coolest material graphene A new university based facilities network the National Nanoelectronics Research and Manufacturing Infrastructure is also planned as part of this initiative Finally the budget supplement notes that an update to the NNI strategic plan is due to Congress in December 2010 The Nanoscale Science Engineering and Technology Subcommittee which oversees the NNI is open to input from all stakeholders As the participating agencies consider how nanotechnology stimulates the commercialization and job creation opportunities Dr Holdren mentioned let s make sure the voice of the innovation experts from the nanotechnology business community are heard One great chance is coming up soon

    whose pursuit of innovative research and commitment to community service are already apparent From these nominees the Office of Science and Technology Policy selects the winners of the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers or PECASE I was pleased to discover that nanotechnology has been on PECASE winner s research agenda at least since 1999 when President Clinton honored Kathryn Kam Moler of Stanford University Moler was nominated by the Department of Defense for her work in developing new experimental methods to probing magnetism on the nanoscale and for using these new tools to study materials such as superconductors that have important uses in critical Air Force applications like high power microwave sources In the decade since Kam s star has continued to rise In addition to leading a very successful research group http www stanford edu group moler utilizing local magnetic probes she is now the director of the Center for Probing the Nanoscale http www stanford edu group cpn index html a National Science Foundation funded center where Stanford and IBM scientists continue to improve scanning probe methods for measuring imaging and controlling nanoscale phenomena Of course they have a great legacy from which to draw Many people consider the invention of the scanning tunneling microscope which brought IBM scientists Gerd Binnig and Heinrich Rohrer the 1986 Nobel Prize in Physics a seminal event in the history of nanotechnology Binnig and his longtime colleague Christoph Gerber then based at IBM s Zurich laboratory spent 1986 visiting Stanford and IBM s Almaden laboratory in San Jose Their collaboration with Calvin Quate at Stanford led to the first and perhaps still most successful of the STM s progeny the Atomic Force Microscope We are going to take a look at one more recent PECASE recipient this week Rashid Zia is an Assistant Professor of Engineering at Brown University and a member of the Institute for Molecular and Nanoscale Innovation http www brown edu Departments IMNI His works on nanophotonics is supported by both NSF and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research On AFOSR s recommendation he was honored among the 2008 PECASE winners Rashid describes his work as melding an optical physicist s interest in how light behaves in nanostructured materials with an electrical engineer s desire to develop useful new devices So he and his students model build and characterize subwavelength photonic devices often based on rare earth compounds He says these plasmonic devices can combine the speed of optics with the nanoscale size we have come to expect in the electronics world One of the group s goals is to improve LED lighting and hasten our transition away from inefficient incandescent or mercury containing fluorescent bulbs a great example of my green clean and never seen theme for nanotechnology More PECASE stories will follow in the coming weeks along with some profiles of other well known nanoscientists Please send me feedback on who you would like to see included Who do you think are the
