Dr. Coskun joined NASA

Congratulations to Dr. Bulut Coskun for commencing his career with the NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA.

UT Dallas establishes a new research center

The proposal for the “Center for Atomically Precise Fabrication of Solid-State Quantum Devices” has been selected by UT Dallas to receive an award. The center will advance the technology of Hydrogen Depassivation Lithography with particular attention to the atomically precise positioning of dopant atoms in a single atomic Si(100) plane. This is a new and exciting path to realizing analog quantum simulation devices, designer quantum metamaterials and even quantum computing devices and systems.

LDCN receives Phase-II STTR funding from Department of Energy

Reza Moheimani and James Owen (Zyvex Labs) have won a Department of Energy (DOE) Phase-II Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) award. The project “High Speed Platform for Highly Parallel STM lithography and Hierarchical Assembly.” This project builds on the team’s work in Phase-I to develop and commercialize Microelectromechanical System (MEMS)-based Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) scanners for atomically precise manufacturing.

Australian Research Council Discovery Grant Awarded

Reza Moheimani is a Partner Investigator on the ARC Discovery Grant: “Robust Control of Highly Resonant Flexible and Nanoscale Systems” that was recently selected for funding by Australian Research Council. The project is led by Professor Ian Petersen at Australian National University. Professor Alex Lanzon at University of Manchester is another PI. The project’s aim is to develop systematic control synthesis tools for highly resonant systems, and to investigate their applications, particularly in micro and nano-electromechanical sensors.

Paper is selected to receive IEEE TCST Outstanding Paper Award

The paper titled “Multimode Q Control in Tapping-Mode AFM: Enabling Imaging on Higher Flexural Eigenmodes”, published in IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology, vol. 24, No. 4, pp 1149-1159, July 2016 was selected to receive the 2018 IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology Outstanding Paper Award.
