Nobel prize winner in physics speaks at UW-L
Understanding — and using — nanotechnology would be like having "the biggest Lego set of the universe."
That's how Horst L. Stormer, a German-born physicist, described the field to more than 100 faculty and students at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse during a Thursday evening lecture.
(Ed.'s note: this statement is misleading "A nanometer, for instance, is 1,000 times smaller than what can be seen under the microscope." - microscopy tools exist today that can image well under 100-nm's.)
