Indian endorses UA tech

Abstract:
A former president of India bowed his head and smiled modestly as he entered the Donald W. Reynolds Center auditorium Friday afternoon to a thunderous standing ovation.

The 300-seat room on the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville campus was packed with people to hear A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, a rocket propulsion scientist who stepped down three months ago after five years as president of the world's largest democracy.

Friday afternoon Kalam toured research laboratories at UA's Genesis Technology Incubator in the Arkansas Research and Technology Park.

Varadan highlighted the university's research in nanotechnology and nanoscience, including ongoing development of tiny sensors that can transmit a person's vital signs to hospitals, wearable material that can harness solar power and nanofilters that can improve water quality by decreasing arsenic and mercury levels.
