LDCN receives Phase-I STTR funding from Department of Energy

Reza Moheimani and James Owen (Zyvex Labs) have won a Department of Energy (DOE) Phase-I Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) award. The project “High Speed Platform for Highly Parallel STM lithography and Hierarchical Assembly” aims to develop and commercialize Microelectromechanical System (MEMS)-based Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) scanners.

LDCN receives DOE funding under EERE’s Emerging Research Exploration program

The project, “A Platform Technology for High-throughput Atomically Precise Manufacturing: Mechatronics at the Atomic Scale”, was selected earlier this year as one of the 24 proposals to be funded under this program by DOE-EERE Advanced Manufacturing Office. The project is led by Moheimani and involves Zyvex Labs (John Randall) and NIST (Jason Gorman) as subcontractors. More details can be found here.
