    Thursday, Feb. 12, 2009

    Santa Clara University's Center for Nanostructures (CNS) has received $1,328,000 in continuation funding from the U.S. Army to support "Thermal and Electrical Nanoscale Transport [TENT].  The award now totals $4,355,998.
    With the goal of designing, fabricating, and testing a lightweight, low-resistance (electrical and thermal), longer-lasting chip using new carbon-based interconnect and thermal interface materials, the Center for Nanostructures initiated its thermal and electrical nanoscale transport (TENT) project in February 2007. Cary Yang, principal investigator and CNS director, said the five-year project  "is a timely response to the current need of integrated circuit manufacturers for enhanced performance and increased reliability in their most advanced products."
    Funding for both undergraduate and graduate student research assistants is included in the budget.
