Fall Symposium: Nanovation: From Science to Startups

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

IEEE SF Bay Nanotechnology Council Presents
8th Annual Fall Symposium

“Nanovation: From Science to Startups”

Saturday October 27th 2012, 9 AM – 5 PM
Location: Stanley Hall, University Drive, UC Berkeley Campus, Berkeley CA

In association with Center for Energy Efficient Electronics Science (E3S), National Science Foundation (NSF), and Berkeley Nano Club (BNC).

Since its conceptualization by Dr. Richard Feynman, Nanotechnology has come a long way in its development and the Nanotechnology Age is the likely successor of the Information Age. Its penetration in electronics, medicine, textiles etc. has been disruptive in many arenas of science and technology. Due to its enormous potential Researchers, Entrepreneurs, and Investors have shown tremendous interest in Nanotechnology and invested significantly each in their own way. This symposium is focused on bringing together the unique perspectives of these three groups and reviewing the progress so far and the ever widening landscape of Nanotechnology. Centered on the current activities of students and recent graduates this event will include a poster session.

Novel Thermal Interface Materials for 3D Chip Stacks

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012





October 16, 2012 Noon-1PM
TI Auditorium E-1
2900 Semiconductor Drive. Santa Clara, CA

TITLE: Novel Thermal Interface Materials for 3D Chip Stacks

SPEAKER: Srilakshmi Lingamneni,
Ph.D Candidate, Stanford Nanoheat Laboratory, Stanford University


This talk will present an overview of the broad spectrum of research work being carried out at ‘Stanford Nanoheat Laboratory’, the state of the art thermal characterization tools at our lab and the novel mechanical characterization tools that are being developed. It will discuss in detail the past work, latest developments and future directions of research in nanostructured interface materials. The talk will then explore the thermal challenges of 3D IC integration and new material requirements for thermal management in 3D packaging and discuss the novel interface materials that are being developed.


Srilakshmi Lingamneni received her B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras in 2008 and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University in 2010. She is currently pursuing Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University. She was a Stanford Mechanical Engineering department teaching assistant for the academic years, 2008-2010. Her research interests include development of various thermal interface materials for thermal management in electronics, with a particular focus on materials for 3D integrated chips.

AGENDA: Registration & light lunch 11:30am. Presentation & Q/A 12:00 to 1pm
