The 17th Foresight Nanotechnology conference is scheduled for Feb 7-9, 2013. 20 speakers will present their research and vision within the realm of groundbreaking atomic- and molecular-scale science and engineering with application across a wide range of advanced technologies, including materials, electronics, energy conversion, biotechnology and more. Events will include presentation of the annual Foresight Institute Feynman Prize, one of the most prestigious awards in nanoscale science and technology.
Planned Sessions include:
Analysis and Simulation
Commercially Implemented Nanotechnology
Electronic and Optical Nanosystems
Self-Organizing and Adaptive Systems
George Church at the 2013 Technical conference
George is a leader in Synthetic biology and talked about DNA for storage of data and an existing molecular actuator and device.
Assembly and Manipulation of Molecules talk from the 2013 Technical Conference
The use of functional molecules and their assembly into pre-defined architectures are key challenges in nanotechnology and of interest in various fields from molecular electronics over novel materials to molecular machines. We are studying molecules that contain optical, electronic, mechanical or electric functions on surfaces by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) at low temperatures. The central questions are whether and how these functions can be triggered at the single-molecule level and what is the influence of the atomic-scale environment?
