The Materials Revolution
Leonard C. Feldman
Professor of Physics and Materials Science and Engineering,
Rutgers University and Vanderbilt University
Wednesday 10th March 2010 at 15:15 at BMB seminar room
Coffee/tea at 15:00
The talk will be given in English.
Modern materials research includes engineering with atoms, the molecule-by-molecule attack of a cancer growth, collecting the sun's energy with nanocrystals, exploiting the quantum world for computing, defining a stem cell by mechanical deformation and bringing the quantum world to the human experience in an ultra-small solid! Extraordinary accomplishments range from Nobel prizes in chemistry and physics to society-changing applications. Currently, the forefront of materials science is at the nano-scale. Advances in nano-scale materials are envisioned as the solution to some of the dominant technological problems facing our world---conservation of energy and environment, water purification and propagating the information revolution. This talk highlights research directed to these advances.
