A monthly lecture on topics related to nanoscience and nanotechnology given by an expert in the field.
The monthly MIT.nano seminar was first presented to the community in 2019 through the "Perspectives in Nanotechnology" lectures, an introductory set of talks by experts who have played seminal roles in the progress of our understanding of the nanoscale in key areas over the past decades. Organized by assistant professor Farnaz Niroui, the series was met with much enthusiasm from members of the MIT and nano communities, and so the MIT.nano seminar series continues to offer monthly talks from researchers across the spectrum of nanoscience and nanoengineering.
Talks last approximately 45 minutes and are followed by a 15-minute question-and-answer session. Once a year, MIT.nano will welcome a member of the MIT.nano Consortium to give the seminar. Suggestions for guest speakers can always be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The November seminar is the Mildred S. Dresselhaus Lecture, named in honor of beloved MIT professor Mildred "Millie" Dresselhaus, the “queen of carbon science.” This annual event recognizes a significant figure in science and engineering from anywhere in the world whose leadership and impact echo Millie’s life, accomplishments, and values.
Note: The Spring 2021 MIT.nano seminars will be presented virtually due to COVID-19. All seminars will take place at 3 p.m. EST unless otherwise indicated.
