A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 18-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 29, 2018. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 18-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
The Electronic and Photonic Materials (EPM) program seeks to advance the field of electronics and photonics through basic, potentially transformative materials science research. The scope of the program encompasses the discovery and understanding of materials and material integration with potential for major technological innovations. The program covers identification and understanding of phenomena and fundamental mechanisms associated with synthesis and processing of electronic and photonic materials at atomic and molecular levels. The primary focus of the program is on novel materials and their integration that may offer new paradigms in critical computing, communication and sensing components, or enable advanced optoelectronics and photonics. Research on materials with reduced dimensionalities and metamaterials is welcome. Development of new experimental techniques or novel approaches to explore electronic and photonic materials is also encouraged. Research topics include, but are not limited to, nucleation and growth of thin films and nanostructures; self-assembly and nanopatterning; interface-related phenomena and properties; defect and doping control; bulk crystal growth; and relationships between synthesis/processing, structure, and properties.
