Nanotechnology

The field of nanoscience -- the science of the very small -- is exploding and is likely to profoundly shape our future, impacting everything from energy production and storage to cutting edge, designer medicines. Here to help us separate the science from the science fiction is Dr. Amanda Petford-Long, director of the Nanoscience and Technology Division and the Center for Nanoscale Materials at Argonne National Laboratory.

Dr. Petford-Long is giving a talk called "The Nature of Nano" on Dec. 11 at 5:00 pm at Northestern University's Chicago campus, hosted by the Chicago Council on Science and Technology. Click here for more information.
