Paul Stokes has been selected as one of the 60 participants from the United States to attend the upcoming Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting for Physics in Germany. Paul is a graduate student in the Department of Physics and is a student of Dr. Saiful Khondaker, who has a joint faculty appointment at the NanoScience Technology Center and in Physics. Paul and Dr. Khondaker have been exploring the mass fabrication of nanoelectric devices using carbon nanotubes (as shown above) as documented in their recent paper in the journal Nanotechnology (19, 175202, 2008) titled “Local-gated single-walled carbon nanotube field effect transistors assembled by AC dielectrophoresis”. This paper has received a lot of attention and is currently featured in in an article titled “Large-scale fabrication approach of CMOS compatible high-performance nanotube transistors”. Dr. Khondaker initiated Paul’s nomination to the Nobel Laureate Meeting which was formally nominated by the VP of Research, Dr. M.J. Soileau. As part of this process, Paul will attend the meeting in Germany, he will listen to the Nobel prize winners’ lectures, and will take part in various networking experiences during this week long event from June 29th to July 4th. We congratulate Paul and hope he enjoys this rich educational experience.
