Nano@Tech welcomes Dr. Dennis Hess, director of GT MRSEC and professor in the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, on "The GT MRSEC on New Electronic Materials: Research, Education and Outreach."

Abstract:
The Georgia Tech Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) was established by NSF in September 2008. This Center is funded for 6 years and is a cross-disciplinary effort involving GT as well as The University of California Berkeley, The University of California Riverside, Alabama A&M, and The University of Michigan. Initially, the Center focus is on graphene, a material with the requisite properties and potential to serve as the successor to silicon in ICs, sensors, and MEMS devices. Although research is a major effort of Center activity, substantial efforts are in place for education and outreach. This presentation will describe the organization of the GT MRSEC, the breadth of research that has been undertaken, the educational activities underway and planned, including a Partnership for Research and Education in Materials (PREM) with The Atlanta University Center (Clark Atlanta, Morehouse and Spelman Universities), and the outreach programs. Future plans and goals will be described.
