Multi-disciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) 2005

Vanderbilt’s Multi-disciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) grant was in the area of Radiation Effects on Emerging Electronic Materials and Devices and was active from 2005 to 2010. This program was managed by Kitt Reinhardt of the Air Force Office of Scientific Research. Participating universities included Vanderbilt University, Arizona State University, the University of Florida, Georgia Tech, North Carolina State University, and Rutgers University. The research program focuses on using experiments and advanced simulation methods to understand the effects of radiation on new microelectronic technologies.
