January 19, 2022

MIT News reports on a new white paper authored by a group of MIT researchers arguing that the country’s strategy for reasserting its place as a semiconductor superpower must heavily involve universities, which are uniquely positioned to pioneer new technology and train a highly skilled workforce. Their report, “Reasserting U.S. Leadership in Microelectronics,” lays out a series of recommendations for how universities can play a leading role in the national effort to reattain global preeminence in semiconductor research and manufacturing. Lincoln Laboratory researchers co-authored the paper, which also highlights the role of the Laboratory's Microsystems Prototyping Foundry in enabling innovation.
