  • Abstract
  • Exclusive Content

Speaker PhotoMeyya Meyyappan is Chief Scientist for Exploration Technology at NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, CA. His research interests include carbon nanotubes, graphene, and various inorganic nanowires, their growth and characterization, and application development in chemical and biosensors, instrumentation, electronics and optoelectronics. He is a Fellow of IEEE, MRS, AVS, ECS and AIChE.

Carrier transport in vacuum is the fastest and vacuum devices are inherently radiation resistant. We have developed nanoscale vacuum transistors by entirely using silicon technology and the devices have the potential for THz electronics. This talk will also cover our recent efforts in flexible electronics.
