Computer science: what it takes to succeed

Abstract:
The company started in 1996 with the promise that new nanomaterials could store energy more efficiently than conventional techniques. At the time, Sean Bi, a Chinese-born post-doctoral student in physics at the Massachusetts In stitute of Technology, was working on a unique way to create powders of nanoscale particles by shining laser light through gases. Nanoparticles are almost like new elements: They have different properties than bigger versions of the same molecules. (Super tiny things have much bigger surfaces than they have volume--and this changes many properties.)
