The SMTA Capital Chapter is pleased to announce its first meeting of 2014 on March 4th, from 5:30 pm until 8 pm at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, 11100 Johns Hopkins Road, Laurel, MD 20723. The focus of this chapter meeting will be Development of Lead-free Nanosolders for Micro/Nanoelectronics Assembly and Packaging” presented by Dr. Zhiyong Gu, Associate Professor, Department of Chemical Engineering and Nanomanufacturing Center, University of Massachusetts Lowell.

Nanosolders have shown great promise in enabling smaller scale assembly and packaging, such as nanoelectronics assembly and nanodevice integration. In this presentation, Dr. Gu will review the recent progress on nanosolder research and nanosoldering development, including nanosolder synthesis and characterization, melting temperature depression, nanowire soldering and interconnection. He will also show his recent results on lead-free nanosolder paste, nanosolder reflow, and nanowire assembly and soldering, and discuss some important issues such as wetting, intermetallic formation, and nanosolder joint reliability.

Dr. Gu is currently an Associate Professor and Graduate Coordinator in the Chemical Engineering Department at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, where he is also affiliated with the Nanomanufacturing Center. He received his Ph.D. from the University at Buffalo, the State University of New York in 2004 and worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Johns Hopkins University from 2004 to 2006. His research interests include nanoparticles and nanowires, self-assembly, sensors and biosensors, and nanoscale assembly and integration for electronics and devices. He has published 4 book chapters and over 50 peer-reviewed journal papers, and contributed to over 130 presentations in professional conferences. He is currently an Associate Editor for the Journal of Nanoparticle Research and serves on the editorial board of several other journals.

The evening is scheduled as follows:

  • 5:30-6:30 pm Registration, Networking and Dinner
  • 6:30-7:30 pm Presentation: “Development of Lead-free Nanosolders for Micro/Nanoelectronics Assembly and Packaging” presented by Dr. Zhiyong Gu
