UAlbany's 'spin' doctor

Dr. Vincent P. LaBellaVincent LaBella was recently awarded a $400,000 National Science Foundation grant through its Faculty Early Career Development Program. A UAlbany professor in the School of Nanosciences and Nanoengineering, LaBella is an expert in surface nanosciences and the emerging field of spintronics. Spintronics exploits the spin of the electron to design and fabricate novel semiconductor devices that are exponentially faster and more efficient than current device generations.

LaBellaís award comes on the heels of a $750,000 grant from the New York State Office of Science Technology and Academic Research Faculty Development Program and a $600,000 award from the Interconnect Focus Center.

The School of Nanosciences and Nanoengineering is the first school in the nation to develop and implement core curricula, research themes, workforce development opportunities, and educational programs in the emerging disciplines of nanosciences and nanoengineering. The school offers cross-disciplinary Ph.D. and masterís programs which integrate science principles from physics, chemistry, computer science and biology with the cross-cutting fields of nanosciences and nanotechnology.
