7:15am- noon

Nanotechnology 103

Houston, TX | Posted on March 12th, 2010

While sporting goods was the first market to take advantage of nano-enhancement, aerospace is the next frontier--with nano-research and development already underway.

This continuation of our Rice-HTC "NANO Short Course" series provides a greater understanding of how nanoparticles are incorporated into advanced materials. It explores the breadth of advantages offered by nanoparticle incorporation, as well as the aerospace applications available with nano-enhanced materials.

Schedule

7:30am - Light breakfast & networking

8:00am - 11:00am - Nano 103, a short course covering advanced nanomaterials & aerospace

11:00am - 12:00pm - Presentations on Houston-area nano-commercialization efforts by:
--NanoRidge
--Members of the Smalley Institute, on The Lockheed Martin Advanced Nanotechnology Center of Excellence at Rice University (LANCER)

Speakers

* P. M. AJAYAN, Benjamin M. and Mary Greenwood Anderson Professor of Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science Dept., Rice University. Dr. Ajayan is one of the pioneers in the field of carbon nanotubes and was involved in the early work on the topic along with the NEC group.

* RAMANAN KRISHNAMOORTI, Dow Chair Professor, Dept. Chair Professor of Chemistry, Associate Dean for Research, Cullen College of Engineering, University of Houston, Dr. Krishnamoorti's research aims at developing materials with tailored properties through a detailed understanding and manipulation of molecular level structure, synthesis and most uniquely processing methodologies.
