Abstract:
The University of Colorado at Boulder physics department will continue its Saturday Physics Series on Jan. 19 with an examination of some of the tools used in the nanotechnology field and where breakthroughs in the field may lead.

Nanotechnology To Be Explored At Jan. 19 CU-Boulder Physics Program

BOULDER, CO | Posted on January 12th, 2008

Physics Professor Charles Rogers will present the talk "Nanotechnology: Making and Shaking Small Things" at 2 p.m. in Duane Physics room G1B30. The event is free and open to the public.

Rogers will discuss some of the tools that are used to create extremely small electronic and mechanical devices whose physical dimensions are measured in nanometers, or billionths of a meter.

He also will talk about whether nanoscale mechanical oscillators - tiny masses on tiny springs that produce a repetitive electronic signal - could be used as miniature radio sources in cell phones, or as sensors that could be used to detect and measure the chemical binding of individual molecules.

The Saturday Physics Series is targeted at Colorado high school students, teachers and adults. The remaining 2007-08 Saturday Physics Series schedule is:

o Feb. 16, 2 p.m., Duane Physics room G1B30, Assistant Professor Heather Lewandowski of physics, "Billiards at the Nanoscale."

o March 15, 2 p.m., Duane Physics room G1B30, Professor John Bohn of physics, "Physics of Baseball at Mile High."

o April 19, 2 p.m., Duane Physics room G1B30, Assistant Professor Oliver DeWolfe of physics, "Einstein, the Early Universe and Everything."

The series is funded by an outreach grant from CU-Boulder's Outreach Committee.
