Transcript

  • 1. Nanotechnology at UNH: Innovative Science In Support of Next Generation Consumer Products Glen P. Miller Department of Chemistry and Materials Science Program University of New Hampshire Wild For Innovation Friday, March 5, 2010
  • 2. S S I polymer Active Layer (PCBM + P3HT) Al Solar light I polymer Active Layer (PCBM + P3HT) Al Solar light Application Road Map Nanoelements Thrust I Acenes Funct. Fullerenes Funct. CNTs & Graphene Nanocups & Nanorings OFETs, OLEDs Organic Photovoltaics Nanotemplates Flexible Electronics Polymer composites, EMI Shielding Interconnects Structural & Electronic Mat’s Cyclacenes & Uniform SWNTs
  • 3. An Example: Carbon Nanotube Memory Chip 2 ON state OFF state In principle… In reality… Related Applications: SWNT Switches, Sensors, Transistor Arrays
  • 4. Q: How Can We Achieve Addressable Sites Based on 1 CNT (required to make highest density memory chips) A: Chemical Functionalization
  • 5. Initial Result: Hydrogenation of C60 Buckminsterfullerene Work Performed at UNH for Collaborators at Northrup Grumman
  • 6. Northrup Grumman Wanted a Faster, Scalable Process Innovation: Use Microwave Reactor  Reduce Total Reaction Time to 5 minutes
  • 7. Before Hydrogenation After Hydrogenation Innovation: Apply Same Chemistry to SWNTs  Highly Dispersed Species
  • 8. 30 Seconds 5 Minutes 1 Hour 2 Days Functionalized SWNTs Stay Well Dispersed Without Added Surfactant H-SWNTs H-SWNTs H-SWNTs H-SWNTs SWNTs SWNTs SWNTs SWNTs
  • 9. Carbon Nanotube Memory Chip 2 ON state OFF state In principle… In reality… Related Applications: SWNT Switches, Sensors, Transistor Arrays
  • 10. Carbon nanotubes assembled from solution Nanomanufacturing with Templates
  • 11. S S I polymer Active Layer (PCBM + P3HT) Al Solar light I polymer Active Layer (PCBM + P3HT) Al Solar light Application Road Map Nanoelements Thrust I Acenes Funct. Fullerenes Funct.
