Nanotechnology Research Key to Big Semiconductor Breakthroughs

Posted by Dustin Todd, Director of Government Affairs on Jul 16, 2015 12:00:00 PM

The world’s big challenges are increasingly solved using technology that is exceedingly small. Nanotechnology, which involves the manipulation of individual atoms and molecules, is making possible breakthroughs across a range of applications, including transportation, health care, clean energy, communications, and entertainment. The semiconductor industry designs and manufactures at the nanoscale level and depends heavily on advances in nanotechnology.

SIA and Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) today submitted recommendations to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) on how to utilize nanotechnology to address big scientific and technical challenges. SIA and SRC’s input comes in response to an OSTP initiative called “Nanotechnology-Inspired Grand Challenges for the Next Decade,” which seeks to identify large-scale research challenges that can be solved using nanoscience and nanotechnology within the next 10 years.
