Nanotechnology and centrifugal force for clean water

Abstract:
Today I was privileged to serve as Co-Chair of the Clean Water session at the IEEE San Francisco Bay Area Nanotechnology Council's annual meeting "Nanotech: From Promise to Reality". This year's theme was Creating a Sustainable Environment.

Our session's first speaker was Olgica Bakajin of Lawrence Livermore, who is using carbon nanotubes to filter water. She is getting amazing flow rates, much higher than theory would predict, due to the atomic smoothness of the tubes.
