Nanotechnology science showcase

Abstract:
The latest Yorkshire Science and Technology Network (YSTN) Science Showcase event focused on nanotechnology, which involves the manipulation of materials at the molecular scale - this is invisible to the naked eye, and a million times smaller than a pinhead. Applications for Nanotechnology are varied, from doubling the lifespan of the humble tennis ball and increasing the feel and control of tennis rackets - great for Wimbledon fans, to self cleaning cars -great for lazy Sunday mornings. Professor Richard Williams, Vice Chancellor for Enterprise, Knowledge Transfer and International Strategy at the University of Leeds, and Director of the Nanofactory, explained how nanobusiness is impacting on a global scale, opening up debate on the implications for future innovation.
