Description

Nanotechnology embodies the idea that the smallest things can make the biggest differences in our lives. By manipulating materials at the nanoscale, we can create products that perform better than we've ever seen before. In this episode, we uncover why this is possible and discuss how nanotechnology will impact our future.



Our topics today include:



  • What is nanotechnology?


  • Why there's so much hype around this field


  • Today's applications of nanoscience


  • How nanotechnology is used to fight against COVID-19


  • Explaining nanotechnology in Marvel movies


  • How metamaterials can turn invisibility into reality



More information on nanosponges against COVID-19 can be found HERE.



More information about metamaterials and invisibility cloaking can be found HERE.
