Immediately ending carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions will not be enough to solve the climate crisis; we also need to stabilize the Earth's temperature by compensating the loss of albedo from short-lived anthropogenic aerosols. Dr. Ye Tao, The Rowland Institute at Harvard

Dr. Ye Tao from The Rowland Institute at Harvard will present research on solutions for climate change at the 2nd Annual NanoScientific Symposium at SUNY Polytechnic Institute on Nov. 19, 2019.

“Immediately ending carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions will not be enough to solve the climate crisis; we also need to stabilize the Earth's temperature by compensating the loss of albedo from short-lived anthropogenic aerosols,” stated Dr. Tao. “We find full deployment on land and at sea within 10 years both necessary and affordable,” adds Dr. Tao regarding Project MEER:ReflEction developed at The Rowland Institute at Harvard.

In his presentation at NanoScientific Symposium at SUNY on Nov.19, 2019 titled Mirrors for Earth’s Energy Rebalancing (MEER:ReflEction): Resource-driven engineering for leveraging Earth's chemistries to immediately offer remediation, Dr. Tao will discuss how effectively addressing the complex issue mandates simultaneously solving five individually challenging problems: (1) planetary overheating, (2) energy production, (3) ocean acidification, (4) positive climate feedbacks, and (5) food security.

What is MEER:ReflEction? MEER:ReflEction is a grand, versatile, and comprehensive engineering project feasibly rooted in the ecological functioning and resource availabilities of planet Earth. It addresses the imminent urgency of climate change due to temperature increase and weather extremes while reshaping our energy production and consumption to renewable energy. MEER:ReflEction applies aluminum thin film-coated glass mirror arrays to most efficiently achieve (1) solar radiation management via dynamic control of surface albedo, (2) renewable energy production, (3) carbon dioxide drawdown through ocean liming using solar thermally-produced calcium oxide (CaO),(4) removal of secondary greenhouse gases and air pollutants via atmospheric photochemical engineering, and (5)biodiversity recovery via a geographic restructuring of agricultural primary production in a high-CO2 world.

This is one of the many exciting presentations you will hear when you attend the NanoScientific Symposium at SUNY Nov. 19, 2019.

NanoScientific Symposium on SPM will be held at the Park Nanoscience Center located at SUNY Poly’s Albany NanoTech Complex, a fully-integrated research, development, prototyping, and educational facility and home to the College of Nanoscale Sciences and the College of Nanoscale Engineering and Technology Innovation and will feature headline speakers from SUNY Polytechnic Dr. Nathaniel Cady and Dr. Ji Ung Lee.

“On behalf of SUNY Poly, Dr. Cady and I look forward to participating in this valuable engagement which will help to highlight some of the latest advances related to SPM and its wide-ranging applications right here in Albany, NY, which has become a high-tech center for innovative research,” said Dr. Lee.

Dr. Lee’s presentation at the NanoScientific Symposium at SUNY will feature the latest developments in 2D Reconfigurable Devices. “We are at a point of inflection. For decades, Moore’s law has been the guiding principle for the semiconductor industry. Now, however, the semiconductor industry is struggling with the physical limits of transistor scaling. Although the industry primarily relied on miniaturization to increase functionality, there is an unexplored path that has the potential to allow even bigger gains than those achieved by Moore’s law,” states Dr. Lee. “Our preliminary calculation suggests that by implementing fine-grained 3D monolithic integration, one can not only extend Moore’s law but
also achieve more efficient computations.”

Dr. Lee will describe their efforts to integrate 2D TMD films in SUNY Poly’s 300mm wafer line and describe a single device that can reconfigure into the three most fundamental devices. 2D transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) are a natural choice for channel materials for developing 3D monolithic integration. In addition, they are useful for implementing reconfigure devices that can enable more efficient logic devices, including XNOR logic for machine learning applications.
