The properties of materials are defined by the atoms they’re composed of and how these atoms are assembled. Controlling this structure at a microscopic scale – or even lower, at the nanoscale – yields new materials with customized properties.
Join us for April’s Café Scientifique as we dive into the fascinating world of nanotechnology - the manipulation of matter at the teeny, tiny molecular scale – and explore its potential to solve major contemporary challenges and its impact on the future.
