Are Nanoparticles alive? Dr. Amanda Barnard



In the world of science fiction, nanotechnology is often shown as swarms of micro-machines that act without the need for human supervision. Much like their biological counterparts, these imagined devices even sometimes possess their own intelligence.

The imagination of science fiction writers has taken this high tech fantasy beyond the reality. But scientists have imagination too, and increasingly they are taking nanomaterials to remarkable places with properties that sound stranger than fiction.

In this talk, Dr Amanda Barnard will take us through the latest advances in nanotechnology and answer the fantastic question: 'Are nanoparticles alive?'

When: Tuesday, 6 October 2015, refreshments from 5:30 pm.
Lecture and live streaming<http://science.org.au/livestream/> 6pm - 7pm
