Physics departmentīs nanotechnology lecture series

October 11, 2005

The Connecticut College Department of Physics, Astronomy and Geophysics presents a fall colloquium series on the subject of nanotechnology, a broad interdisciplinary field of research considered by some to be one of the largest and potentially most important developments in technology since the invention of the transistor.

The lectures, all of which will begin at 7 p.m. in Room 210 of the Blaustein Humanities Center, are free and open to the public. The lectures are designed to provide an introduction of the topic to individuals with a general interest in nanotechnology.

  • On Thursday, Oct. 20, Moungi Bawendi, professor of chemistry at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will speak on "Tiny Crystals that Shine Brightly: The Science and Technology of Nanocrystal Quantum Dots."
  • On Monday, Nov. 7, Mark Reed, the Harold Hodgkinson Professor of Engineering and Applied Science at Yale University, will speak on "Low-Dimensional Electronic Devices, and the Future of Electronics."
  • On Wednesday, Nov. 30, Ching Tang, a research chemist at Kodak Research Laboratories and inventor of organic light-emitting diodes, will speak on "The Chemistry and Physics of Flat-Panel Televisions."
  • On Thursday, Dec. 8, JoAnn Feeney, who covers nanotechnology and nanoelectronics for the equity research group at Punk, Ziegel & Co., will speak on "Is Nanotech Ready for the Market?"

The seminar series is funded by a grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
