Cordially invite you to attend a

 

QUANTUM TECHNOLOGY COLLOQUIUM

 

 

WHAT NANOTECHNOLOGY IS

AND WHY IT MATTERS

 

Presented by

 

PROFESSOR SUPRAKAS SINHA RAY

 

DST/CSIR Nanotechnology Innovation Centre, National Centre for Nan-Structured Materials,

Council for Scientific and Industrial Researcher,

Pretoria

 

 

ABSTRACT:

Over the last few years, nanotechnology has radically changed the fields of physical sciences and   engineering, somewhat comparable to the emergence of superconductivity in 1986. However, this new area is more extensive in its potential impact: it encompasses not only physics, chemistry, materials science and engineering, but also biology and medicine.

 

Nanotechnology research is leading to an unprecedented understanding of and control over the basic building blocks and properties of most natural and man-made objects.  In addition, advances in nano-fabrication, using top-down as well as bottom-up technologies, have afforded the ability to work at the atomic and molecular levels to create large structures with fundamentally new functionalities.

 

Therefore, understanding what nanotechnology is and why it matters is the first step in a roadmap toward our future: it is the next generation for industries, financial markets, research labs, headlines, and our everyday lives.

 

This presentation will focus on an informed and balances look at nanotechnology and its future.  Also provide the real science behind nanotechnology, nano-scale materials, nano-structured materials and applied nanotechnology.

 

 

DATE: Thursday, 25th AUGUST 2011

 

TIME: 12h15

 

VENUE: NITheP Seminar Room, Level 3, H-Block, Westville Campus

 

Refreshments will be served prior to the talk.
