This event is no longer available for registration.
From Richard Feynman's seminal lecture in 1959 to the 'Grey Goo' of doomesday scenarios, nanotechnology became one of the most hyped scientific ideas of the late 20th century. Now, more than a decade into the 21st century, has this hype transformed into the revolutionary new technologies we were promised, or do we still have a long way to go?
This talk will touch on everything from using a scanning probe microscope to build structures atom-by-atom to how nanotechnology is portrayed in popular culture.
Finally, Dr Blunt will try and answer the most important question of all: where's my Nanobot?
