There has been a global proliferation of materials that display new and useful behaviors when uniquely structured. These materials have exceptional potential to revolutionize technologically advanced systems by realizing new and improved devices. The failure to develop an efficient collaborative path for researchers and tech innovators to access and transition these materials and structures puts the Army’s technological advantage at risk. The Semiconductor Research Nanofab Center (SRNC) is a vehicle to enable collaboration between a broad set of regional research nanofabrication facilities to provide government, academia and industry with a more robust and complete research nanofabrication capability.
Electronic Materials (Silicon, III-V, II-VI, 2D materials)
Platform for marketing intellectual property and expertise of member facilities.
Point of Contact
Paul Sunal, Ph.D.
Open to national and defense labs, universities and industry
Concept of Operation
The SRNC will establish an overarching cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA) that defines the extent of collaboration conducted under the center and defines the disposition of intellectual property and the sharing of research outcomes and laboratory resources.
