The Ann Arbor Science & Skeptics is having a meet-up on Saturday, April 5 from 4:00 to 7:00pm at Cubs AC. We’ll be in the back room located down the short hallway past the bar.
Our special guest will be Dr. L Jay Guo, professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan.
Dr. Guo's area of specialty is Optoelectronics; Biophotonics; Nanotechnology and Nanofabrication. So we will discuss these topics, as well as understand our current state of utilizing cutting-edge technologies in the manufacturing world.
The first part of the event will be for general socializing and ordering refreshments. After which, there will be some announcements, and then we will start the conversation at approximately 4:30.
There is no cost to attend but donations to cover the guest speaker's meal and beverages, as well as general group expenses, are appreciated.
Edit: After having conversed with Dr. Guo, I wanted to provide some additional clarification on the topic. We will mostly talk about optics and how optics relate to nanomaterials, carbon nanotubes, etc.
So the innovation of technology will likely be things like LCD/LED displays, Ultrasound machines, Invisibility technology, Solar Panels, etc.
