ASME Nano Bootcamp, Day 2
Chris Phoenix: Today was the first of three all-tech-talk days at the "Nano Bootcamp" conference. Quite a brain-stretcher. One of the talks explained how heat works at the quantum level; another, quantum mechanics; a third, magnetism... Of course, in a little over an hour, they couldn't cover the topic completely, but all the talks tied equations to simple-but-accurate descriptions (at least as far as I could tell), and some of the explanations were up-to-date to the point of "We don't yet know exactly how this part works."
