"Some Advances in Nanotechnology at Berkeley" Alex Zettl [Professor of Physics, UC Berkeley]

12:00 p.m., Wednesday, October 14
Banatao Auditorium, 3rd floor, Sutardja Dai Hall, UC Berkeley

The complete schedule for the semester is online at http://www.citris-uc.org/events/RE-fall2009 . As always, these talks are free, open to the public and broadcast live online at mms:/ /media.citris.berkeley.edu/webcast , and questions can be sent via Yahoo IM to username: citrisevents. Sponsored by Infineon Technologies.

Alex Zettl received a B.A. degree from the UC Berkeley in 1978, a Ph.D. degree from UCLA in 1983, and joined the faculty of the UC Berkeley Physics Department in 1983. He is currently a Professor of Physics and a Senior Scientist at LBNL He is also the Director of the Center of Integrated Nanomechanical Systems (COINS), an interdisciplinary nanoscience center involving researchers from Berkeley, Stanford, Cal Tech, and UC Merced.

His research group is currently investigating electronic, magnetic and mechanical properties of nanoscale materials such as fullerenes, carbon and non-carbon nanotubes, and two dimensional sheet structures such as graphene and boron nitride. They are also interested in unusual electronic ground states in conventional and high temperature superconductors and charge density wave materials.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
