Nanoscale Electronics

The Office of Naval Research (ONR) Nanoscale Electronics Program objective is to study the electronic, optical and magnetic properties of, and potential device functionalities in, nanometer scale materials and structures. In order to accomplish this objective, the program will address science and technology challenges at multiple levels:

  • Material level: synthesis, characterization and understanding of novel nanomaterials with desired functionalities is a challenging task
  • Device and circuit level: need to invent and demonstrate entirely new classes of devices and circuits that fully utilize the properties of nanomaterials
  • Architecture level: conventional von Neumann architecture is not scalable
  • Fabrication and manufacturing: as we approach sub-10nm scale, current fabrication techniques have difficulty with resolution and/or throughput

Note: Potential proposers are encouraged to communicate with the program officer prior to white paper submission. White papers are preferred by 30 April of each year. Typical award range: $50,000 - $400,000
