The Center for Nano-enabled Device and Energy Technologies (CNXT) held their first poster review this week at Carnegie Mellon University. The event served as an opportunity for the center's faculty to meet with Alan Brown, the Executive Director of the Pennsylvania NanoMaterials Commercialization Center, a local organization formed by Alcoa, U.S. Steel, PPG Industries, and BayerMaterial Science. This group will work with Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pittsburgh, and the Pennsylvania State University to advance nanotechnology in Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania.
Under the direction of Elias Towe, Professor of ECE and Albert and Ethel Grobstein Memorial Professor of MSE, the Center for Nano-enabled Device and Energy Technologies harnesses nanoscale research underway at both the College of Engineering and the Mellon College of Science. Housed in the Institute for Complex Engineered Systems, the center primarily focuses on nanoscale research that enables the design of innovative systems for sensing and on future energy generation and storage technologies. The secondary focus of the center is on advanced information and communication technologies.
