Intelligent & Additive Manufacturing

The NSF Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing (CHN) is developing tools and processes to conduct fast large scale directed assembly and transfer of nanoscale elements for manufacturing nanotechnology based devices in electronics, energy, materials and biotechnology sectors. The manufacturing technology developed is room-temperature and pressure and two orders of magnitude lower in cost compared to current technology.

The CHN has demonstrated devices such as chemical sensors, biosensors, electronic devices, interconnects, energy harvesters, NEMS, etc. with 2D and 3D nanoscale features made of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and nanoparticles at high rates and over large areas on various substrates including flexible ones. The developed manufacturing processes are material-independent and are eco-friendly.
