MSE Brumley Pritchett Lecture Series

Primary tabs

Chad Mirkin of Northwestern University will speak on "Nanotechnology: Learning to Think Big in a Field Focused on the Small," as part of the Brumley Pritchett Lecture Series.


Nanotechnology is an interdisciplinary field focused on studying and manipulating ultraminiaturized structures, ones with at least one dimension 10,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. This field has the potential to transform almost every aspect of our lives for the better – from enabling our cell phones and computers to run faster to generating our power more efficiently to making our tennis racquets and golf clubs lighter and more durable. How can such small materials lead to such big advances? Come and discover all of the amazing size, shape and composition-dependent properties of nanomaterials that are changing the way we see the world on a length scale that can’t even be observed with the naked eye.
