Join us for a special Take-out Science Session as we celebrate National Nanotechnology Day on October 9th. We will give a quick introduction to length scales and nanotechnology, find out more about a clean room, and observe various samples on our scanning electron microscope. We will go live at 1 pm (EDT). Submit your nano-inspired questions for our experts in the comments section below or email us at rtnanonetwork@ncsu.edu.

Abby Carbone Inspires the Next Generation of Nanotechnologists

Former RTNN Student Ambassador and NC State alumna Abby Carbone, recently joined the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) on the “Stories from the NNI” podcast to discuss her passion for science outreach. “Stories from the NNI” is a podcast where researchers and innovators discuss their work at the nanoscale, the challenges they’ve faced, and how they’ve connected with the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI).

Webinar: Technology Pathways Toward Commercializing Nanotechnology

This webinar will focus on quality control in the manufacturing process and builds on the National Nanotechnology Initiative’s Technology Pathways workshop held in November 2017. Webinar panelists will engage in a dialogue about the importance of and issues surrounding quality control in the production of nanomaterials. NNCO Director, Dr. Lisa Friedersdorf, will moderate the discussion.

Panelists will open the webinar with a brief overview of their experiences, successes, and challenges in ensuring the quality of manufactured nanomaterials. These remarks will be followed by a Q&A period. Questions for the panelists can be submitted to webinar@nnco.nano.gov from now through the end of the webinar at 11:30 AM on September 19, 2018.

Panelists:

  • Katherine Barton (Director of Production and Laboratory Operations, Nano-C, Westwood, MA)
  • Doug Singer (Executive Vice President of Manufacturing, Cerion Advanced Materials, Rochester, NY)

This webinar is free and open to the public with registration on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration is now open and will be capped at 500. Register here.
