NYIT Awarded NSF Grant for Sputtering System for Nano/Micro-Fabrication Research

NSF LogoNew York Institute of Technology has received a $230,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to purchase a direct current/radio frequency (DC/RF) sputtering system to support multi-disciplinary research on medical sensors, micro power generators, miniaturized flexible tag antennas, and bioengineering applications and implementations. 

“This grant represents a number of firsts for our university—it is the first NSF Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) grant that NYIT has received, and we will house it in the very first clean room to be fabricated in Nassau County,” said Rahmat Shoureshi, Ph.D., provost and vice president for academic affairs at NYIT.
