Talk on "Nanoscience & Technology - Hype or Hope?" at DTU

Abstract:
Nanoscience and Nanotechnology is being hailed as one of the most exciting areas of science in the present age and key to solve several of our current and future problems. However, translational research in the newly emerging areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology is sophisticated, complex and expensive. Moreover, there are serious issues of ethical values and safety associated with these developments. In the view of above, the hype around the disciplines seems to overstate the applications of nanotechnology. This was the crux of talk on "Nanoscience and Technology, hype or hope?" delivered by Padamshree Prof. K. L. Chopra, renowned physicist and former Director, Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur at Delhi Technological University (DTU), formerly Delhi College of Engineering, campus today.
