The Center for Energy Efficient Electronics Science (E3S) is a Science and Technology Center (STC) funded by the U. S. National Science Foundation, and is a consortium of world class academic institutions.
We are working in a collaborative and innovative environment to make fundamental and conceptual breakthroughs in the underlying physics, chemistry, and materials science of electronic systems, breakthroughs needed to reduce these systems’ energy consumption by orders of magnitude.
