Lecture: 'The Age of Nanotechnology'
(Nanowerk News) The Institute of Nanotechnology and the Institute of Engineering and Technology are delighted to announce the prestige launch lecture for their joint Micro and Nano Technology Network, to be given by Professor James Gimzewski at 6.30 pm, Tuesday 8th July, at The IET, Savoy Place, London.
Hear James Gimzewski, Distinguished Professor of Chemistry at UCLA and leading nanoscientist, talk about the strongest material ever made, the reality of a space elevator, how the electronics industry kick-started the nanomedicine revolution, and the potential for programming single molecules. If that's not enough diversity in one individual, he will also share with his audience some of his passion for the artistic interpretation of the nano world!
Dr James K Gimzewski received the The Duddell Medal and Prize for his contribution to nanoscale science in the use of scanning probe microscopy for the understanding and development of nanomechanics and tunnelling phenomena in atoms and molecules. He was elected Fellow of the Institute of Physics and of the Royal Academy of Engineering and sits on a number of scientific boards.
Attendance is Free. Tea and coffee available from 5.30 pm
