About this event


Nanotechnology is the manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular and supramolecular scale in fields of science as diverse as surface science, organic chemistry, molecular biology, semiconductor physics and microfabrication.

Lots of substances behave very differently in the world of atoms and molecules so nanotechnology may be able to create many new materials and devices with a vast range of applications, such as in medicine, electronics, biomaterials and energy production.

In tandem with these possibilities, there are however concerns about the toxicity and environmental impact of nanomaterials and their effect on global economics.

Speaker

Dr Brendan Casey, CEO, Kelvin Nanotechnology Ltd
