Future for Nano in Energy To Be Explored
(At Nanotech2006) Richard E. Smalley Institute Director Dr. Wade Adams outlines nano projects for light-weight autos, home-based power storage, resistance-free grids, and cell phones that can run for days on a single charge.
Dr. Adams is Director of the Richard E. Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology at Rice University in Houston, Texas. Nano World News caught up with Dr. Adams to discuss his view of the near-term and future prospects for how nano might change energy industry in the coming years. As you’ll see, he is very bullish.
