nanotechnology forum
Nanotechnology Forum
  • We are pleased with the turnout - we have a super sampling of Rice Nano research - 30 presentations.
  • We have 150 faculty doing nano research in all areas.
  • We see a real future for JSC - Rice cooperation in nanotechnology research.
  • At Rice, we have the breadth and depth technically to serve as a nucleus for a new nano research and development program at JSC.
  • At Rice, we also have the experienced leadership for helping to develop such a program.
    • Wade Adams and Jack Agee worked to develop the Air Force Nanotechnology program from its inception.
    • We have developed CONTACT and LANCER

into working and productive partnerships.

administrative remarks
Administrative Remarks
  • We have two rooms for the meeting
    • Longhorn – 49 persons
    • Alamo – 300 persons – fixed for 200
    • Room at the back for discussions
    • We encourage JSC - Rice interaction
  • Lunch will be available in the Alamo Room
  • Our Luncheon speaker will be Wade Adams

Primary Goals of CONTACT

  • Accelerate tech transfer
  • Foster nano-based education, R&D, and commercialization
  • Provide materials and devices for superior aerospace systems for the Air Force
  • Grow intellectual and experimental centers by focusing on aerospace technology and industry
  • Develop leading-edge nanotech aerospace applications faster and better through multi-institutional partnership
contact project description
CONTACTProject Description

CONTACT is focused on the following areas

of interest to the Air Force

and aerospace industry

1.Adaptive Coatings and Surface Engineering

  • Nano coatings (reduce drag, corrosion,repair cracks)
  • Thermal control, space environment resistant satellites
  • Nanoparticle enhanced composites – structures

2.Nano Energetics

  • High energy propellants and explosives
  • Use nanoparticles to control the burn rate

3.Electromagnetic Sensors

  • Devices for optical sensing, communications
  • Ultraviolet, visible, infra-red, terahertz frequencies

4.Power Generation and Storage

  • Solar cells, magnets, next generation batteries, capacitors
  • Enable directed energy weapons, compact power generators
lancer l ockheed a dvanced n anotechnology ce enter at r ice

LANCER:Lockheed Advanced Nanotechnology CEenter at Rice

A unique collaboration between Enterprise and Research University to expand the reach of science while extending the scope of usable technology.

LANCER will support research in Nanoscale Science and Technology at Rice and accelerate the transfer of nanotechnology into Lockheed Martin’s Business Units, products and services.

lockheed short courses @ rice
Lockheed Short Courses @ Rice
  • 3rd Week-long Short Course at Rice - October 07 – Engineering Focus
  • In 2008:
    • One-day Intro to Nanotechnology – for managers
    • 2-3 Day “Deep Dives” into nano-electronics, photonics, composites
  • On-site courses can be held at LM locations
    • Long lead times to coordinate schedules
    • Constraints on faculty time/teaching schedules

lancer research additional benefits to lockheed martin
LANCER – Research + Additional Benefits to Lockheed Martin
  • Research collaboration – extend funding access to agencies
  • Access to students for hire
  • Informal consulting by LANCER faculty
  • Rice will host Lockheed visitors for research purposes
  • Lockheed host Rice faculty/students for research purposes
  • Supplier and materials evaluation by LANCER
  • Blanket NDAs and IP agreements fast tracked
  • Annual technical symposium and workshop (with potential customers/collaborators)
  • Forums and interactions with suppliers – e.g. Nanotube growth workshop
  • LANCER expert referral service
  • Web-based nano-study materials
  • Great publicity from LANCER press releases
  • Sensitivity and awareness of social perception
  • Influence research emphasis/directions (result of much of the above)
the potential for jsc
The Potential for JSC
  • Rice can help JSC formulate a program responsive to NASA JSC needs.
  • Rice can be the university partner in a cooperative agreement – pursuing research of interest to JSC, collaborative with JSC where appropriate.
  • With a Cooperative Agreement, JSC personnel can take advantage of Rice’s superb equipment and laboratories.
  • Rice can provide educational programs for JSC personnel.
  • Rice can pursue research in areas of interest if JSC lacks personnel or equipment and can help in projects at JSC.
