These are the slides from the webinar that was recorded 2/27/09. Description: This presentation will introduce you to some major concepts in nanotechnology, some meaningful applications, how fabrication is performed, and how one can benefit from gaining nanofabrication skills. It is meant to be a first introduction to the material for audiences that have little background knowledge of nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is enabling many fields to improve the knowledge and processing capabilities with innovative methods of fabrication at the nanoscale. The nanoscale is between 0-1000 nanometers but most of the unique properties are observed when structures have dimensions under 100 nm. This incredibly small size brings some new challenges but many beneficial rewards. We have selected three main discussion areas to share with you including: altering material properties, alternative medical treatments, and the impact on the food industry. Presenters: Robert K. Ehrmann, Director of Education & Outreachand Amy Brunner, Research/Outreach Associate
