Porous Nanocrystalline Silicon (pnc-Si)
The Nanomembrane Research Group is a group of students, senior scientists, faculty, and entrepreneurs working on the development and application of porous nanocrystalline silicon (pnc-Si). The pnc-Si material is a molecularly thin, nanoporous membrane that can support more than an atmosphere of pressure without failure. The membranes are mass produced on silicon wafers in a variety of form factors at low cost. The thinness, strength, pore size characteristics, and economics of pnc-Si membranes are enabling a variety new devices in microfluidics, precision biomolecule separation, and cell culture.
