Center will bring together top experts in the field

MINNEAPOLIS / ST. PAUL (11/13/2018) — The University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering announced today that it will lead and house a new $10.3 million Center for Spintronic Materials in Advanced Information Technologies (SMART) focused on novel materials for advanced computing systems over the next four years. 

This center is supported through the Nanoelectronic Computing Research (nCORE) consortium. The key sponsors include the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), 12 semiconductor industry sponsors, and the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The center will include researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Pennsylvania State University, Georgetown University, and the University of Maryland.
