PUBLIC TALK: Nanotechnology: Do We Live in Richard Feynman’s Science Fiction?
|Nanotechnology: Do We Live in Richard Feynman’s Science Fiction?
A public lecture by Axel Lorke, Chair, Faculty of Physics and CENIDE, University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany and 2015 UWA Gledden Visiting Fellow.
In 1959, Richard Feynman, one of the most influential physicists of the 20th century, delivered a lecture, titled 'There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom'. In it, he envisioned a technology that is based on the ability to see, manipulate and build objects on the smallest scale down to the atomic level.
In this public lecture, Richard Feynman's talk will be taken as a wish list from the past to discuss, which of his visionary ideas modern nanotechnology has been able to realise. How has the Room at the Bottom transformed science, technology, and our society as a whole? What has been discovered that Feynman might not have thought of? And what future technologies may emerge from present-day nanoscience research?
