Yale ‘shapes’ up nanomanufacturing with bulk metallic glass

By / March 3, 2009

  Yale engineers are “shaping” the future of nanodevice manufacturing by developing nanoscale molds made from amorphous metals – a.k.a. bulk metallic glasses. Opening the door to mass nanofabrication processes, their work may also enable higher-density computer chips, faster microprocessors, better biosensors and more. Research is led by Jan Schroers, a professor of mechanical engineering…
