In this program, we are seeking to bring together disciplines that are concerned with materials on a scale from the nanoscopic to the microscopic. These length scales for materials bridge the gap between the molecular (chemical) and the micron scale of devices. Chemists are increasingly concerned with complex "supramolecular" arrays, whereas the electronics engineers strive to decrease the sizes of their devices to molecular dimensions. The length scales associated with these disciplines are converging. Unfortunately, the language and laboratory skills that have evolved at the two extremes are quite different, making communication difficult. We envision a program that brings together these disciplines, creates a common language, and will produce a new generation of students skilled in molecularly designed materials. The course helps students establish "critical literacy" in areas outside their core expertise is our proposed research group rotation (RGR). In the RGR, a student will select 3 research mentors with whom three, short-term research projects will be carried out. Each project will include a definition of the problem, a literature search, some laboratory work, and a final written report The student must interview a minimum of 5 prospective research mentors before choosing the three RGR mentors. The RGR student will take part in the full life of the host research laboratory, including participating in all group meetings, seminar activities, etc. of the host laboratory/department. At least one of the three research rotations must be outside the students home department and may include a summer term at a participating industrial or government laboratory.
