PRISM invites you to “Why Nanoscience is Sweet: From Swords to Solar Energy,” a presentation by Dean J. Murray Gibson, founding dean of Northeastern’s College of Science.

Abstract: A nanometer is the distance your fingernail grows in a second. It is pretty small – so why the hype? We’ll talk about why and how nanoscience opens up new horizons for creative stuff from lighter and stronger aircraft wings to hypothetical idiots (carrying all human knowledge on a device the size of your fingernail) or cheap solar cells that could solve the energy problem.

Please see the attached flyer for more information on the event, and PRISM’s website for information on our other programs. We look forward to seeing you next week!
