10:30 a.m. ENGR, room 103. Dr. Meyya Meyyappan, NASA Ames Research Center will be the speaker for the seminar “Printable Electronics and Nanoelectronics Research at NASA Ames”. Meyya Meyyappan is Chief Scientist for Exploration Technology at NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, CA. Until June 2006, he served as the Director of the Center for Nanotechnology. He is a founding member of the Interagency Working Group on Nanotechnology (IWGN) established by the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). The IWGN is responsible for putting together the National Nanotechnology Initiative.
This talk will present an overview of some recent nanotechnology research activities related to nanoelectronics and flexible electronics at NASA Ames Research Center. First, the Research Center has been developing an atmospheric pressure plasma jet printing as an alternative to inkjet printing and aerosol printing techniques. The latter require a post thermal treatment in order to get consolidated thin films. In contrast, plasma jet printing is a one step process, eliminating the need for annealing wherein the plasma enables deposition of films at temperatures between 20 and 70 deg C with good adhesion. The Research Center’s recent activities in printable electronics include chem, bio and radiation sensors, resistive random access memory and triboelectric nanogenerators. Preliminary results in the above developments will be presented.
