Really enjoyed this presentation. Thank you for keeping it understandable for us non-technical types. I think even precollege students can understand a good part of it.

Beautiful pictures of hand used in length-scale presentation – esp. like DNA pictures
I appreciate the depth into which the speaker goes with each slide. However, I think that either further simplification or less examples in the beginning might be more appropriate given the objective of the presentation – eight minutes felt like a lot of lithography. However, the lead-in from lithography into molecule placement and self-assembly is subtle and quite clever.
I really enjoyed the presentation after the \“change of pace\” into properties at smaller length scales. The example with the ant was, while not at the nano scale, very interesting and a good way to present the ideas simply and effectivly.
I\‘ve seen the different colors of gold / biosensors example in other presentations, but yours was the first lecture to present the idea coherantly in the first viewing, due to the depth and time you devote to the ideas you present.
Overall, through I felt dragged through the lithography, the lecture on whole presents a wealth of information and is overall my favorite of the introductory lectures on NanoHUB due largely to the discussion on nanoscale properties. This gives the viewer the pleasent feeling of not only knowing what other people are doing (as is typical of other presentations which only give examples), but also having a feel for what nanotechnology really *is*.

Very good introduction on Nano scale, nano fabrication approaches and scale dependendcy of properties.
