Amanda Petford-Long: Let’s Get Small

Tiny dinosaur!

How small can we go with computers? What happens as materials get as tiny as the dinosaur I’ve shrunk to the size of a pen?

Amanda Petford-Long is a distinguished physicist in the Materials Science Division of the Argonne National Laboratory and an expert in nano-scale materials. Join us as she discusses what nanomaterials are and why they are so crucial to the way we function in our everyday lives. Petford-Long will appear with the Ohio State University’s Science Sundays event on March 18, describing how microscopes can be used as “nano-laboratories.”

No dinosaurs were injured in the making of this image.
