Dr. Thomas E. Wilson, Professor of Physics, presented an invited paper "Convenient and reproducible lift-off procedure of sputtered films by bilayer photolithography" during Track 8-2: Nano- Lithography of the BIT's 1st Annual World Congress of Nano-S&T, held Oct. 23-26 in Dalian, China. His trip was funded by the WV Higher Education Policy Commission and NASA ESPCoR. (The conference link is www.bitconferences.com/nano2011/fullprogram_track7.asp).
The paper resulted in part from work performed this past summer at the Shared Research Cleanroom Facility (SRCF) at WVNano in Morgantown, WV. A Marshall undergraduate chemistry major, Nathanial Crow, assisted Wilson through an REU supplement to his NSF-ECCS grant.

Nano S&T-2011 aimed to offer professionals in Nano related fields a multidisciplinary platform to learn more about the latest scientific updates and current industry standards. Participants explored the intimate knowledge of the research, business and investment activities occurring throughout the global nanotechnology community through business and technology plans. It consists of one plenary forum from a panel of leading experts in nano science and technology, one focused parallel conference on nanomedicine, 16 tracks of parallel scientific symposia on basic research to industrial development, 500+ Oral Presentations by Top Level Engineers and Scientists in Nano S&T and 100+ Poster Presentations for Updating Current Nano S&T.
