The Initiative

The Arizona Initiative for Nano-Electronics (AINE) is a coordinated network of research centers focused on ASU research in nanoelectronics, including nanophotonics, molecular electronics, nanoionics and computational nanoscience. AINE’s goal is to strongly impact future technology areas related to ultra-low power/ultra-high speed electronics, and hybrid biomolecular electronics at the interface between the biological and electronics worlds.

With the unique capabilities of the Center for Solid State Electronics Research (CSSER), the LeRoy Eyring Center for Solid State Sciences (LE-CSSS), and the BioDesign Institute, as well as existing strengths in current faculty research programs, AINE is well positioned to meet these goals.
