Northeastern University-led center to build tiny things
Boston Herald - 04/20/2016
A new effort to turn tiny objects into an economic development initiative with big impact has kicked off, centering on making commercial products with a new nanomanufacturing technique.
“We look at it as a way to democratize manufacturing, it’s a new manufacturing paradigm shift,” said Ahmed Busnaina, a Northeastern University professor who will lead the new Advanced Nanomanufacturing Cluster for Smart Sensors and Materials. “It will enable companies to make cheaper sensors, use less power and be more effective.”
The center will be funded by a $3 million state grant and $10 million in commitments from companies including GE and Rogers Corp., an advanced materials company.
