NSF has long supported cross-disciplinary, fundamental research in computing, advanced materials, nanoscale science, and many other key engineering research areas, including the societal implications of science and technology. The new E2CDA projects consider simultaneously novel approaches, from nanoscale devices and materials to their integration into three-dimensional systems, while inventing new computer architectures to process, store and communicate data. Shown here is an illustration of work done by an NSF-funded electrical engineer who creates tiny structures out of diamonds and other elements to manipulate how light and matter interact on the nanoscale.
