105 Jordan Hall of Science

Nanotechnology has the potential to solve today’s major challenges in the sectors of energy, information technology, health, and environment. However, it can generate fear and distrust: some nanostructures look like asbestos, the idea of nanobots sounds too futuristic, and newly developed molecules are not time-tested.

Join us to see nanotechnologies through the eyes of a physicist, and learn how they can advance breakthroughs in the sciences, from biology to materials science.

For the safety of everyone attending, all events will be held in line with the University visitor policies:
