Seeing and Building with Atoms: Adventures in the Nano World
Elisa Riedo, Associate Professor
School of Physics, Georgia Tech

Elisa Reido's research involves the investigation of nanometer scale mechanical, chemical and physical properties of surfaces and liquid-solid interfaces. At her picoForce Laboratory, she studies interaction forces at solid and liquid interfaces. These studies have a strong impact in nanotechnology, atmospheric sciences, biology, nano and bio-mechanics.

Inquiring Minds @ Tech is a free public lecture series on the physical sciences held Thursday evenings by a Georgia Tech faculty member. These talks are open to everyone and hope to foster a sense of wonder and curiosity of nature. At the end of each session there will be a question and answer period with the speaker. Come prepared to interact with some of the scientific leaders that live here in the Atlanta community.

      Missed you, but I understand traffic can be a show-stopper. I've heard that MARTA to Midtown Station and then on the Tech Stinger Shuttle can work, but I haven't tried it myself.

    Are you aware of any research being conducted regarding stable semi-permeable, non-toxic coatings from nano-scale sound-absorbent materials?
