Saturday, November 12, 2016 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST (GMT -05:00)

As part of the second annual Waterloo Undergraduate Nanotechnology Conference (WUNC), the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN) presents a Distinguished Lecture by Professor Vladimir Bulović, Associate Dean for Innovation, Fariborz Maseeh (1990) Professor of Emerging Technology, MacVicar Faculty Fellow, School of Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, United States.

Lecture: 2:00-3:00pm

The Future will be Measured in Nanometers

The Nano Age is upon us... With nano-scale advancements we are reimagining Health and Life Sciences, Energy, Computing, Information Technology, Manufacturing, Quantum Science,... That is because nano is not a specific technology. It does not belong to a particular industry or discipline. It is, rather, a revolutionary way of understanding and working with matter, and it is the key to launching the next Innovation Age, the Nano Age.
