Nanoelectronics Research Initiative Site Visit
University of Nebraska scientists hosted a team of industry researchers from the Nanoelectronics Research Initiative (NRI) on April 12, 2011 as part of the joint NRI/NSF Supplement to the Nebraska MRSEC. The visiting NRI team was Steve Kramer (Intel) and Zoran Krivokapic (AMD). Bill Gallagher (IBM), Andrew Marshall (Texas Instruments), and Charles Kuo (Intel) attended via web conference.
Evgeny Tsymbal presented an overview of Nebraska MRSEC's research and education programs. Nebraska researchers then presented results from several active research projects. The goal of the Nebraska MRSEC supplement is to understand the physics of boundary magnetization of magnetoelectric antiferromagnets by focusing on a range of complex magnetoelectric transition-metal oxides. The visit provided a forum for stimulating discussions about how Nebraska research can and will help meet the goals of the NRI.
Ning Wu speaks about efforts of a detailed analysis of a surface structure.
