Nano*High: Nature's Nasty Nanomachines: How Viruses Work, and How We Can Stop Them
25 Sep 2010 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Carolyn R. Bertozzi
The birth and growth of nanotechnology is only a few decades old, whereas Nature has been building nano-machines for millennia. Viruses are marvels of natural nano-engineering, but can pose a problem for human health. To combat these nano-machines, scientists are turning to recent developments in nanotechnology to prevent infection and cure disease.
Nano*High: X-rays, Lasers, and Molecular Movies
25 Sep 2010 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Roger W. Falcone
X-ray imaging is an excellent method to make visible what would normally be invisible - who hasn't had an X-ray at the doctor or dentist's office before? At the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, the Advanced Light Source is a gigantic X-ray imaging machine. Dr. Roger Falcone discusses X-ray tomography, is a method that uses these X-rays to produce three-dimensional images and movies of the smallest ...
Nano*High: Nanoscience for High School Students
02 Feb 2010 | Series | Contributor(s): Alexander S McLeod, Jeffrey B. Neaton, Jeffrey C Grossman
The Materials Sciences Division at the University of California's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory invites you and your students to Nano*High, a series of free Saturday morning lectures by UC Berkeley professors and LBNL senior scientists conducting research from nanoscience to molecular medicine, and climate change to astrophysics. 2009-2010 will be our seventh year of Nano*High. Last year over 900 students and their teachers attended at least one talk. Nano*High talks are aimed at all ...
