Public lecture by Professor Paul O'Brien FRS as part of the Manchester Science Festival
In this lecture we explore all ‘Things Nano’. Professor Paul O'Brien reveals the origins and definitions of nanoscience and nanotechnology, addressing the so called ‘Bottom-up’ and ‘Top-down’ approaches. Discover current examples of nano-synthesis and discuss the ideas influencing our perceptions of the area, as well as the potential importance of technologies based on nano-dimensional objects.
This event is free to attend and open to all. No tickets are required and seats will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. For further information on the venue, please visit the website. This event is part of the Manchester Science Festival.
