Nanotechnology Made Simple: The Penn Science Café Visits Washington, D.C.

Philadelphia, PA | Posted on June 20th, 2008

WHAT:

The Penn Science Café lecture series, free and open to the public, takes science out of the laboratory and treats it to a night on the town. The Café is your chance to ask a leading expert your questions about science. Dr. Carpick will explain nanotechnology, give some examples of what it can be used for and talk about unique efforts to help university research in
nanotechnology have a commercial impact.

WHERE:

The Hawk ‘n' Dove
329 Pennsylvania Ave., SE
Washington, D.C.

WHEN:

Wednesday, June 25, 6 p.m.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
Menu items available for purchase.

Dr. Robert W. Carpick, a researcher in material science and engineering, coordinates Penn's engagement with the Nanotechnology Institute, a regional academic-research and technology-commercialization collaboration supported by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Dr. Carpick and his laboratory team work at the intersection of mechanics, materials and physics at the world's smallest scales in an effort to learn the atomic-scale origins of friction, wear and lubrication. His work, funded by the federal government and industry, seeks to translate this research into micro- and nano-mechanical systems, thin-film design and micro- and nano-manufacturing.
