- Pyroelectric electron emission paper is No. 1 download in Applied Physics Letters
- August 30th, 2013 at 9:37am
- Applied Physics Letters has featured a paper by Professor William P. King and Patrick C. Fletcher, formerly of King’s research group, as the most downloaded paper on the site over the past four months. This paper is based on Dr. Fletcher's work on electron emission using the pyroelectric effect from 30 nm thick films of PbZrxTi1-xO3 (PZT).
- University of Illinois researchers measure near-field behavior of semiconductor plasmonic microparticles
- April 22nd, 2013 at 10:00pm
- Researchers at Dr. King's group have measured nanometer-scale infrared absorption in semiconductor plasmonic microparticles using a technique that combines atomic force microscopy with infrared spectroscopy. The ability to directly measure the plasmonic behavior within individual microparticles will allow researchers to design and test more complex optical materials.
- Small in size, big on power: New microbatteries a boost for electronics
- April 17th, 2013 at 9:22am
- Researchers at Dr. King's group have developed fast charging microbatteries with very high power and energy densities via 3D microstructured electrodes and novel battery chemistry. More information at: http://news.science360.gov/archives/20130522
- University of Illinois researchers develop novel technique for chemical identification at the nanometer scale
- March 8th, 2013 at 5:21pm
- Researchers in Dr. King's group measured the chemical properties of polymer nanostructures as small as 15 nm using a novel technique called atomic force microscope infrared spectroscopy (AFM-IR).
- Nanometer-scale diamond tips improve nano-manufacturing
- November 14th, 2012 at 6:11pm
- Researchers at the University of Illinois, University of Pennsylvania, and Advanced Diamond Technologies Inc., have created a new type of nano-tip made entirely out of diamond. The tip can be used for nanometer-scale thermal processing, and it is extremely resistant to wear and contamination.
- King named director of NanoCEMMS

- Dr. William P. King has been named the director of the National Science Foundation (NSF)-Funded Center for Nanoscale Chemical-Electrical-Mechanical Manufacturing (Nano-CEMMS).
The Nanoengineering Laboratory works across the technical areas of nanotechnology, instrumentation, materials science, thermal transport, and micro- and nano-manufacturing. We take a broad view towards aligning our work across the domains of science, technology, and commerce. Researchers join the Nanoengineering Laboratory to develop their skills for understanding scientific fundamentals, advancing the state of the art technology, and seeking translational impact.
Our activities are located in Rooms 49 - 53 of the Mechanical Engineering Building (MEB), and in the various micro/nanofabrication facilities across campus.
