Wake Forest University is about to officially open their new 5000 square foot Center for Nanotechnology.
Through the Department of Physics, Wake Forest University has been involved with nanotechnology research for five years but their recruitment, in August, of the Director of Nanotech from Clemson University, David Carroll, meant a great boost for the Wake Forest team. Carroll's research has already contributed to the development of light-emitting diodes that are now used in high-resolution display screens for Nokia cellular phones.
The mission for the Center for Nantechnology team will be to "drive innovation in organically-based technologies through advances in the nano-sciences". Applications of this technology include organic light emitting displays, novel electronics and drug delivery systems.
