The next seminar in Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Community Science and Technology Seminar Series, “Modern Day Alchemy: Building the Future Atom by Atom,” presented by Steven Spurgeon, Staff Scientist in the Energy and Environment Directorate at PNNL, will take place on Tuesday, February 19, 2019, at 7:00 p.m., at the Richland Public Library (955 Northgate Dr.).
How do we make electronics for the next iPhone even faster, more efficient, and more reliable? How do we build quantum computers that can safely encrypt millions of financial transactions? And how do we engineer batteries that will last long enough for a cross-country road trip? Research on the frontiers of science is helping to realize these goals by allowing us to craft materials never before seen in nature. Learn how we build materials a single layer of atoms at a time, how we image atomic structure using state-of-the-art microscopes, and how we use supercomputers to model and predict the behavior of complex systems. Come see how today’s revolution in designer materials is unlocking the technologies of tomorrow.
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Community Science and Technology Seminar Series was launched to help the general public better understand and explore how science transforms our world.
