Nanotechnology is offering wonderful opportunities to make most of materials around us much better. Nanoparticles can help us to produce energy in a more efficient and less harmful way. They can also transform the environment around us and help us to clean it. Nanotechnology is opening new and exciting world for our civilization and we are still only at the beginning of this fantastic journey. However, there are questions about how safe those small particles are, and whether there are ways to make them safer. This lecture will discuss examples of emerging frontiers in this area while attempting to outline challenges in nanotechnology field.
We welcome students, faculty, staff, and the general public to register here and join us for this special event.
