Paper Abstract

NASA Langley Research Center has developed several breakthrough materials technologies using bio and nanotechnology specifically for device applications. With their expertise and strength in device-specific materials technologies, Langley researchers have identified innovative methods and newly designed materials, such as rhombohedral single crystal silicon-germanium, twin-lattice structures of silicon-germanium for thermoelectric applications, smart optical materials, and size-controlled metallic nanoparticles. These new materials have offered new opportunities to develop devices and power systems, such as micro spectrometers, quantum-apertures, wireless power transmission systems, smart optics, bionanobatteries, and biofuel cells. An overview of these technologies will be given at the meeting.
