Nanotechnology podcasts from MIT

(Nanowerk News) Listen to podcast discussions with scientists and MIT students in the field of Nanomechanics in conjunction with the Spring 2007 MIT undergraduate engineering course "Nanomechanics of Materials and Biomaterials"
Nanomechanics is a nanotechnology area that deals with the study of forces, motions, energies, and deformations over distances of less than 100 nanometers or involving forces less than 100 nanoNewton.
Hosted by professor Christine Ortiz there are altogether 9 podcasts which, apart from the introductory podcast cover these topics:
  • Nanomechanics of Cartilage Aggrecan
  • Heparin Biosensors
  • Elasticity of Fibronectin
  • Sacrificial Bonds in Biological Materials
  • Structured Water Layers
  • Boundary Lubrication
  • Lipid Bilayer Formation
  • Mechanics of Diseased Single Cells: Malaria
