Can Nanotechnology Save The World?

25 January, 2015 @ 11:00 am

£3

The media’s focus on nanotechnology suggests that grey goo may kill everyone at some stage in the future. The reality is very different. We all carry and use nanotechnology every day in our smart phones, for the internet, in computers and for entertainment. I will show how nanotechnology techniques have come from the technology making the transistors that are in all our consumer products before presenting recent research where similar technology is being used for gas sensing for improved and safer working environments, to monitor pollution, to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, for security to make our lives safer and for personalised healthcare that could significantly improve our quality of life.

Speaker: Professor Douglas Paul
