Public Seminar: The Fascinating Nanoworld!

Share this news

Nanoscience is an exciting area of science that studies the world with objects that have very small dimension. All sort of scientists (physicist, chemist, biologist, material scientist, engineer etc.) are studying very very very very small thing in order to better understand the nanoworld. We want to be able to manipulate and understand matter at molecular level, to create artificial structures. This is because structures exhibit novel and very much improved mechanical, chemical, electrical, optical and biological properties, due entirely to their nanoscopic size. Whenever scientists and engineers push their understanding and control over matter to finer scales (nanoscale regime), they invariably discover qualitatively new phenomena and invent qualitatively new technologies.

The aim of this presentation is to give the audience an appreciation of the nanosized regime and scientists’ fascination in the field of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The talk aims to address the following questions:

  1. What is nanoscale? Why Nanoscience?
  2. What are some applications of Nanotechnology?
  3. How do you manipulate nanoscale objects?
  4. How do you make structures out of nanomaterials?

The talk shall be presented with the help of a number of fun-filled demonstrations aiming to illustrate the concepts discussed.
