Nanosensor Manufacturing Workshop Will Be Held in June

On June 13-14, 2017, a “Nanosensor Manufacturing Workshop:  Finding Better Paths to Products” will be held at the National Science Foundation in Arlington, Virginia.  The Workshop supports the goals of the National Nanotechnology Initiative’s (NNI) Nanotechnology Signature Initiative, “Nanotechnology for Sensors and Sensors for Nanotechnology.”  According to NNI, the Workshop will identify key elements needed to achieve production-scale manufacturing of nanotechnology-enabled sensors.  The first day of the Workshop will survey the ecosystem for taking a nanosensor from the research lab to production and examine important issues related to manufacturing, such as fabrication, testing, and product performance.  The second day will include an interactive “scrimmage” in which participants will walk through a hypothetical scenario, such as engaging a contract manufacturer to produce a sensor.  NNI states that “attendance will be limited to encourage robust discussion, and participants will be invited from a wide range of sectors and application areas.”  NNI will webcast the Workshop.  According to NNI, the Workshop will culminate in a publicly available report and may inform future research priorities for achieving scalable manufacturing and commercialization of nanosensors.
