Core Competencies

CNSE’s targeted core competencies began in the areas of wireless sensors & RFID, electronics miniaturization, and combinatorial science applied to organic coatings. Over the years, additional competencies in bioactive materials, corrosion protection and hard coatings have been developed.

The facilities, skilled staff and capital equipment base that make up these core competencies are also being applied to a wide range of government and private-sector research and development projects. Examples of recent CNSE growth areas include: direct write technologies, flexible electronics, polymer materials for electronics and photovoltaics.
