Science Forum Fall Lecture Series Kicks Off with The Ultimate Frontier of Nanotechnology

Hans Christen, director of the Neutron Scattering Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, will present “One Atom at a Time: The Ultimate Frontier of Nanotechnology” Friday, September 7. This is the first lecture in the fall 2018 Science Forum lecture series.

Scientists now have the ability to see individual atoms within a material, watch what they do, and even place an individual atom precisely where they want it. In his presentation, Christen will explore what scientists can learn from watching and manipulating individual atoms, what they will do with this ability, and what nanoscience is and where it is going.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, September 7 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe, Room A (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way). Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the Arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public

We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. To request a pass, please email Amanda Womac.
