This project has supported research to develop multimodal microcantilever gas sensing, to investigate the mechanical properties of Zn and Sn oxide nanobelts for mechanical detection, nanoscale assembly of magnetic nanomaterials into user defined shapes, noise properties of spintronic multilayer systems, and finally, conductivity changes in self-assembled layers of DNA for sensing applications. The project has lead to 3 issued U.S. patents, 3 provisional patent applications, 20 publications, 25 invited talks, as well as numerous conference talks and proceedings. 3 Postdoctoral fellows, 6 PhD students, 3 temporary researchers, and 4 undergraduates 3 of whom were women science majors were supported by this project.
