The week of 3/23-27 is a big week for Cafe Scienifique in the Bay Area, with 4 events on tap. First up, on Monday 3/23 at Down To A Science Cafe is Jeff Grossman, Executive Director, Center of Integrated Nanomechanical Systems, UC Berkeley speaking on “Nanotechnology – Applications to Energy and the Environment” at the Atlas Cafe from 7-9pm.
From the description:
Converting abundant natural resource cleanly and efficiently into electricity is one of the single most important challenges of the next 20 years. This is a materials problem. In fact, this may be the biggest materials problem of our lifetime. The understanding and discovery of new materials will be the key to reaalizing the massive challenge of providing clean, abundant energy on a global scale. We have to discover new materials to generate energy that are abundant, inexpensive, efficient, and scalable. When it comes to new materials, there is nothing newer than nanotech.
