Abstract:

Microstructure science, engineering, and technology are essential to the continued economic well-being and security of the U.S. A sustained long-range research program directed toward an understanding of the scientific and engineering base on which future technological developments will rest is essential. A greater involvement of universities in microstructure science and engineering is necessary for continued progress in microstructure fabrication, as well as to increase the number of people trained in this field. The general ideas that need new and expanded research include configured materials materials characterization and analysis device physics and electronics system architecture and design pattern generation and transfer new scientific phenomena and materials and new instruments. An essential feature of this report is identification of research needs and opportunities. The Panel recommends that three complementary types of activities or organizational modes be established to meet national needs in microstructure, science, engineering, and technology. Author
