Speaker: Dr. Jesse Jur on Nanotechnology

 

Since Richard Feynman’s 1959 visionary talk “There’s plenty of Room at the Bottom”, technologists have dedicated themselves to exploring the frontiers of scaling down to the nano.  As if achieving such a feat wasn’t challenging enough, the physics of materials now begin to change in this realm.  But its all worth the frustration (and price): better computing, protective textiles, and revolutionary medical delivery methods.   There is no doubt that our world has changed and will continue to change because of new advancements in nanotechnology.  In this discussion we'll explore the history, present day, and future of the nanotechnology field.    


Dr. Jesse Jur is an Assistant Professor of Textile Engineering, Chemistry & Science at NC State University’s College of Textiles. He received his PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from N.C. State and has spent the last 12+ years researching primarily at the nanoscale, including experiences in the semiconductor and opto-electronics industries. His research now mainly focuses on applying the use of nanotechnology to textiles applications.

    I would have liked more focus on the survey and the last slide. Jesse's research is interesting but better related to other Meet-ups.

    Looking forward to this! I've been studying 1 and 0 dimensional systems so this sounds great!

    Unfortunately, I'm going to have to put in a very long day at work on Monday, so will miss the lecture. Enjoy!

    This is an event organized by this meetup, however Dr. Jur presented this same topic to the local Science Cafe, which you also might be interested in attending.

    This sounds like a lot of fun! Is this lecture part of a larger series that the Meet Up is merely attending (like Periodic Tables in Durham) or is this an event organized by this Meet Up?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
