ACMiN Seminar: „Nanomaterials for applications in electronics and biomedicine”
It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the Krakow Condensed Matter Seminar which will be held on Thursday, December 9th at 2.00 p.m. in the ACMiN auditorium no.: 1.02A on the second floor, bldg. D-16 (Kawiory Street 30). Alternatively, you can join the meeting via the link below:
The lecture entitled „Nanomaterials for applications in electronics and biomedicine” will be given by Prof. Michael Giersig (Freie Universitat Berlin, Germany) who will join us online.
Abstract Advances in the controlled growth and characterisation of high-quality nanomaterials are a key factor in laying the foundations of modern nanomaterials for applications in biomedicine and electronics. One of the most important challenges of nanotechnology is the design and production of materials starting from the atomic scale, through the molecular scale to the supramolecular scale. The best known description of nanotechnology was developed by the National Nanotechnology Initiative (USA), defining nanotechnology as the manipulation of matter in which at least one of its dimensions lies between 1 and 100 nanometres. The development and creation of a new generation of smart nanomaterials has been made possible by interdisciplinary collaboration. Sophisticated nanomaterials are the result of synergic cooperation between specialists in the following fields: physics, chemistry, biomedicine, materials science, computer science and humanities. The dynamic development of nanotechnology is clearly visible in numerous biomedical and electronic applications and they will be the subject of my lecture. I will present specific examples of nanomaterials due to their production methods determining their specific properties such as size, morphology, structure – electronic and crystallographic, superparamagnetism, superhydrophobicity and biocompatibility, implying their applications.
