Brown University opens nanotechnology center
Hoping to advance nanotechnology, Brown University in Providence, R.I., has established a new research center, the Institute for Molecular and Nanoscale Innovation.
Last week, Brown launched the institute with a three-day nanoscience forum.
The institute studies particles so small that they can be viewed only with an electron microscope, said Robert Hurt, the institute's director and a professor in Brown's division of engineering.
The careful analysis, manipulation and control of the tiny particles can have practical results. For example, most sunscreen lotions used to be white, like cream, to block the sun's rays.
