Nano Van Takes the Brakes Off Technology

Abstract:
A vehicle resembling a mobile home stationed outside of Blackburn served as a "functional lab" equipped with a probe station, atomic microscope and thermal evaporator at the two-day Inaugural Nanotechnology Symposium.

"It's a useful educational tool for all levels," said Dr. Peizhen Zhou, a research associate at the Howard Nanoscale and Engineering Facility. "And it's important to let people know what this technology is and its functions."

The mobile "functional lab" included in the symposium, which ends today, was equipped with several devices commonly found in scientific labs from microscopes that magnify atoms 600 and 1 million times to a hyper filter clean room for necessary sterilization.
