Molecular Scale Technologies for Electronics and Life Sciences
July 12, 2005
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, San Francisco Bay Area Nanotechnology Council, announces its upcoming lunch seminar: Molecular Scale Technologies for Electronics and Life Sciences presented by Jim Hollenhorst, Ph.D. Vice President and Director, Molecular Technology Laboratory, Agilent Laboratories.
"We are living through two unprecedented technological revolutions. Advances in electronics are fueled by the relentless pursuit of ever smaller devices embodied in the infamous 'Moore's Law', leading to multi-million-fold improvements in performance, size, and cost. The life science revolution is fueled by our increasing understanding and ability to measure and manipulate the fundamental molecules of life.
These revolutions are converging at the molecular scale. The techniques of electronics are now being married with those of chemistry and biology to enable the engineering and measurement of structures at the molecular or nanoscale.
I will describe work in Agilent Laboratories on new devices and measurement techniques enabled by applying the techniques of electronics technology to the field of life sciences, or by novel ways of building and measuring nanoscale structures."
When: July 19, 2005 11:40 to 1:00 PM
