Tool Talks

MIT.nano Tool Talks are designed to introduce the latest transformative technologies, tools, methods and science advancements.

Tool Talks are sponsored by individual tool suppliers but geared toward the entire MIT community—applicable to a generalized scientific audience from materials science to electrical engineering, applied physics to biology and medicine, mechanical engineering to environmental science and more—for broadest impact and to provide educational value for all levels of students, postdocs, staff, faculty, and collaborators. 

Since September 2017, MIT.nano has hosted over 40 tool talks. See a quick snapshot of all the tool suppliers who have participated here.

Scheduled approximately once a month, MIT.nano Tool Talks are organized by Anna Osherov, assistant director of user services for Characterization.nano. These events are flexible in format to enable more learning and cross-pollination through the technical and scientific knowledge-based seminars, as well as discussions and/or demos. Occasionally, shorter Tool Talks Express seminars may also be offered to complement the regular monthly Tool Talks. Previous and upcoming events are listed on the MIT.nano website. http://mitnano.mit.edu/events/
