ASME Nano Bootcamp, Day 3
Chris Phoenix: I had to miss a few of the talks today, but even so I heard quite a lot of interesting stuff. Cool trivia: A DVD has 7.5 miles of track on it. And a possible correction: On Day 1, I described a report of a mechanical vibrating beam that was so sensitive its vibrational energy was quantized. While talking about nano-mechanics, James Hone today said "there are about ten or twenty reasons why this is complete hogwash."
