Atoms are unreliable, they make up everything! Yet they are fascinating and the best toys chemists and physicists could ask for. Join us (for a beer?) and to explore the world on the atomic level.
Graphene: life in flatworld
Professor Michael Hilke (Associate Professor - Department of Physics at McGill University)
Graphene, a single sheet of atoms is one the the most fascinating newly discovered materials of the last fifteen years, with promises to revolutionize technologies such as consumer electronics, nanomedicine and green energy. This is based on its remarkable properties, like excellent conduction, transparency, strength, bio-compatibly in addition to recently discovered superconductivity. Do the actual applications live up to graphene's potential? In this presentation I will explore the different facets of this fascinating flat world.
