Think Science: Nanotechnology
Those nacho-flavored chips you're eating? They probably taste that way because of micro-flavor particles covering the surface. Engines that burn cleaner fuel? Thank nanotechnology. Sports equipment that lasts longer, flies faster... lighter weight material for aerospace and engineering, even biological machines within the human body... Even a decade ago there were over 800 publicly available products that could be classified as using nanotechnology, which is defined as science, engineering, and technology conducted at the nanoscale, which is about 1 to 100 nanometers.
At this Think Science event, held on Friday, November 16, 2018, we invited local scientists and researchers to talk about their work in the field of nanotechnology.
