Nanoengineering our world and ourselves

Time: Wed 2019-05-08 12.15 - 13.00

Lecturer: Wouter Metsola van der Wijngaart, School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Location: South East Gallery, Main Library

Nanoengineered electronic circuits and sensors propelled us into the Information Age. But nanoengineering can take us further… Large-scale integration of nanoengineered actuator components, which convert energy to motion, could form shape-changing materials. Merging nanoengineered technology with living matter could form biohybrid cyborgs with superhuman capabilities. This lecture will show recent advances and provide a perspective outlook in this technology field.
