Model buckyball tops Bristol nanoscience lab

Abstract:
A four-metre diameter model of a carbon molecule buckyball, one of the fundamental components of nano-engineering, has been placed on top of the Centre for Nanoscience and Quantum Information currently under construction at Bristol University.

The £11m facility will contain some of the 'quietest' labs in the world when it opens in spring 2008. Conducting experiments on the nano-scale requires extremely low levels of vibration and noise, and stringent controls on air temperature and noise.
