Nanoscience and Technology


Many scientists believe that nanotechnology, a field that involves engineering on a very small scale, has great potential to change both our economy and the way we live.  At the nanoscale, materials we know well can have very different properties, making them valuable for a wide range of products. We’ll look at recent developments in this field here at the University of Illinois. We’ll have two guests, Irfan Ahmad, associate director of the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology, and Yi Lu, professor of chemistry.

Guests: Irfan S. Ahmad, Ph.D. (Executive Director, Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology, University of Illinois) and Yi Lu, Ph.D. (Jay and Ann Schenck Professor of Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, University of Illinois).

Host: David Inge.
