Two-line summary of talk:
Understanding and harnessing the power of quantum mechanics is the goal of Quantum Information Science (QIS) an emerging field at the crossroads of Physics, Computer Science, and Engineering. Hear how HP Labs is using QIS.

Presentation topic:
Nanotechnology builds devices that are constituted of only a few atoms. Objects at these scales obey the laws of quantum mechanics. Understanding and harnessing the power of quantum mechanics is the goal of Quantum Information Science (QIS) an emerging field at the crossroads of Physics, Computer Science, and Engineering. This talk will explore the interconnections between QIS and Nanotechnology and give an overview of the HP Labs program to study these connections.

Speaker's Biography:
Marco Fiorentino received a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Naples, Italy in 2000. Since he has held positions at Northwestern University, the University of Rome, and MIT. He is currently at HP Labs' Quantum Research Science. His work focuses on quantum optics with applications to quantum information communications and computing.



Date: Tuesday, March 21, 2006
Event Sponsor: IEEE San Francisco Bay Area Nanotechnology Council
Subject: Applied Nanotechnology Self-Assembled Monolayer technology
Speaker: Dr. Charles V. Fishel, President and Chairman of Interface Sciences Corporation
Time: Registration & lite lunch 11:30am. Presentation & Q/A 12:00 to 1pm
Cost: Members $5; Non-members $10
Place: National Semiconductor, Building 31, 955 Kifer Road, Santa Clara, CA
RSVP: to Dhavaljb@aol.com
Web link: www.ieee.org/nano

Two-line summary of talk:
Nanotechnology enabled self assembled monolayers find uses in a myriad of places. Supercritical CO2 is used to deposit them on multivariant surfaces.

Presentation topic:
Dr. Charles V. Fishel, President and Chairman of Interface Sciences Corporation will discuss commercialization of its self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) technology, which involves the use of supercritical CO2 to deposit chemistry on surfaces. This technology provides surface functionalization and tailorability of Nanomaterials. Applications in many diverse vertical markets have been identified.

Speaker's Biography:
Dr. Fishel is a Senior Lecturer at San Jose State University and California State University , Monterey Bay. He has held management roles with FORTUNE 100 multinational (Intel, Teledyne, Carnation Company, Peter Kiewit Sons' and Williams Companies) and start-up companies. ISC is the worldwide exclusive licensee from Battelle Memorial Institute of SAMs ISC is relocating its corporate offices to the Silicon Valley.
