Nanoscience, Nanotechnology & Corrosion symposium
(Nanowerk News) Stevens Institute of Technology and NACE International, Leaders in Corrosion Control Technology, Metro New York Section, will host the Winter 2007 Corrosion Symposium: Nanoscience/Nanotechnology & Corrosion, Nov. 13, 2007, at Stevensí Charles V. Schaefer, Jr. School of Engineering & Science, Hoboken, N.J. Stevensí Associate Dean of Engineering, Dr. Keith Sheppard, a professor materials engineering, will welcome the attendees and deliver opening remarks at the symposium.
Top scientists and researchers in the fields of materials science and corrosion are turning to nanoscience/nanotechnology in a continuous effort to be more clear and precise in explaining natural phenomena at the macromolecular level. This atomic level of interaction of 10 to the minus nine-meter level, or nanometer level, is imperative because it offers a never-before-seen glimpse into the study of interactions on a biological cell level.
The applications of nanoscience and nanotechnology have produced numerous invaluable products, materials, and coatings. This exclusive symposium, featuring product developers and several leading speakers from top universities in and around the metro New York area, will provide an overview of this cutting-edge technology, and introduce the audience to current and future trends in nanotechnology.
