Nanoscience, Bionanoscience, and Engineering

At Penn State, we explore nanoscience to design electronic devices that can dissolve completely after their effective operation, removing the need for recollection. These types of emerging devices create unique opportunities for implantable devices, environmentally benign sensors, security-related applications, and more.
