Williams challenged MIT, however, to pioneer an even broader kind of "multidisciplinarity": "We need to bring science, technology and society together."
For example, "nanotechnology is not just a matter of molecules, but also of public understanding because fear of it will hurt the field."
Professor of Chemistry Moungi Bawendi, who works in nanotechnology, agreed. Bawendi's research focuses on quantum dots, or semiconductor particles only a few billionths of a meter in diameter. He noted that "the societal psychology around quantum dots is extremely difficult to navigate."
