Please save the date for this year's Nanotechnology Workshop at the University of Minnesota! This year's workshop offers presentations on Nanoparticle Synthesis and Reactivity, Advanced Electronic Materials, Nano Toxicity, and Photovoltaics. We will also host an evening reception and poster session, as well as tours and introductory short courses at the Nanofabrication Center and Characterization Facility.
The Nanofabrication Center and Characterization Facility will offer special introductions to workshop attendees.
