On February 13, 2018, Dr. Alexander Orlov kicked off the first STEM Speaker Series with his lecture on “How nanotechnology can save us and the environment: Making it happen in a safe way.”
Dr. Orlov first introduced the old application of nanotechnology in medieval stained glass and then focused on the modern day new application of environmental nanotechnology that can reduce air pollution. His collaborative research project with PURETi, spraying a coating on exterior surface of buildings and facades using light to clean air, is one of the most successful forefront research initiatives in nanotechnology. As it is imperative to consider health and safety, Dr. Orlov’s research also focuses on safety of nanomaterials.
The lecture, which ignited a rich discussion on nanotechnology, was well attended by students, faculty, and staff.
