Distinguished Lecture series continues with nanotech expert

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Molecular nanotechnology pioneer Dr. Ralph Merkle will deliver the Quantum Frontiers Distinguished Lecture at the University of Waterloo on Friday June 24.

Dr. Ralph MerkleIf you could arrange individual atoms exactly as you wanted, what breakthroughs would be possible?

Dr. Ralph Merkle will address this and other questions when he delivers the second instalment of the Quantum Frontiers Distinguished Lecture Series on Friday June 24.
 
The lecture, presented by the Institute for Quantum Computing and the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology, will explore how precisely arranged atoms can be used for a variety of applications, from quantum computing to materials design.
 
Dr. Merkle is a senior research fellow at Singularity University and a renowned expert in molecular nanotechnology, among other fields. He is a co-inventor of public key cryptography, for which he was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame, and has made significant contributions to cryonics research.
 
Held once a term, the Quantum Frontiers Distinguished Lecture brings an international expert in fields spanning quantum information and nanotechnology to the University of Waterloo. The inaugural lecture featured IBM nanotech expert Don Eigler (watch a video of his lecture here).
 
Dr. Merkle’s lecture is free and all are welcome to attend.
