"Directed Self-Assembly of Vertical Nanotubes for Biosensors, Logic, and Nano-Biofuel Cells," will be the focus of NJIT's exhibit today at the National Nanotechnology Innovation Summit 10 www.nsti.org/events/NNI/, at the Gaylord Center in Washington, DC. The event celebrates the 10th anniversary of the national nanotechnology initiative.
NJIT was the only university in New Jersey selected for this exposition featuring practical applications of nanoscience resulting from the last decade of federal funding under the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI).
On view are four nanotech projects, each one illustrating innovative and practical approaches to creating structured, functional devices at molecular scales. The projects are based upon the work of NJIT Research Professors Reggie Farrow and Zafar Iqbal chemistry.njit.edu/people/. The US Department of Defense provided support for the work.
Project titles are: Directed Self-Assembly of Vertical Single Wall Carbon Nanotubes; Nano-Bioprobe Array for Subcellular Electrophysiology; Nanoscalable Enzymatic Biofuel Cells; Carbon Nanotube 3D Integrated Circuits.
The three-day program includes: the Nanotechnology Innovation Showcase, presenting the nation's top transformational technologies in development for commercialization; dynamic speakers and panelists on topics such as bringing disruptive technologies to market, scaling and financing energy technology, views from the White House and Capitol Hill, building regional clusters and more. ###
NJIT, New Jersey's science and technology university,enrolls more than 8,900 students pursuing bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees in 120 programs. The university consists of six colleges: Newark College of Engineering, College of Architecture and Design, College of Science and Liberal Arts, School of Management, College of Computing Sciences and Albert Dorman Honors College. U.S. News & World Report's 2009 Annual Guide to America's Best Colleges ranked NJIT in the top tier of national research universities. NJIT is internationally recognized for being at the edge in knowledge in architecture, applied mathematics, wireless communications and networking, solar physics, advanced engineered particulate materials, nanotechnology, neural engineering and e-learning. Many courses and certificate programs, as well as graduate degrees, are available online through the Office of Continuing Professional Education.
