The Alliance for Nanosystems VLSI

Our Mission
To merge advances in nanotechnology with very-large-scale integration (VLSI) processes in order to create complex nanosystems-based tools for science and industry—thus accelerating nanoscience out of the laboratory and into the marketplace.

Main Thrusts
The Alliance for Nanosystems VLSI has primarily targeted the following areas for VLSI-based nanosystems technological development. Please click the links for more information:

Image below: First generation, 200 mm (8") nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) wafers produced collaboratively by the Alliance for Nanosystems VLSI. The unprecedented wafers from the first foundry run, each with more than 2,000,000 NEMS devices, comprise far more NEMS than the total created in the preceding ~15 years of the field.
