NACK Webinar: Nano Applications in Today's World


This webinar and corresponding webinar slides, provided by the Nanotechnology Applications and Career Knowledge Support Center (NACK Center), were presented on September 24, 2010. Presenter Stephen J. Fonash, Director at the Center for Nanotechnology Education and Utilization (CNEU) Regional Center at Pennsylvania State University, states that nanotechnology has often been thought of as playing a key role in the next industrial revolution. Nanotechnology, however, is not an industry; it is an enabling technology that is impacting a growing number of industry sectors, which now include electronics, biotechnology, biomedicine, pharmaceuticals, and many others. Yet, Fonash argues, many people still have no idea what nanotechnology is. This video explains why it is critically important that today's students and instructors have a better understanding of nanotechnology and of its far-reaching implications and competitive opportunities.

This webinar is one hour and 38 minutes in length.
