Come along to this event at the Bristol & Bath Science Park to hear about the current state of play in nanoscience from leading academic researchers, and an entrepreneur with a current business perspective.
In time, nanotechnology will revolutionise the way we live, work and communicate.
This 'platform technology' will enable businesses to design and develop new applications, with the potential for massive growth.
It will be well-worth your time understanding a little of the potential of nanotech.
Professor Mervyn Miles FRS FInstP CPhys. Professor of Physics, Head of the Nanophysics and Soft Matter Group and Director of the Centre for Nanoscience & Quantum Information, University of Bristol.
His research activity over the last 20 years has been in the development and application of new scanning probe microscopes (SPM) with specific applications in soft matter. SPMs are major characterization techniques in nanoscience and nanotechnology. Recent developments include atomic force microscopes capable of over 1000 frames per second and video-rate non-contact force microscopes also capable of revealing the structure of water at the molecular scale above a biological surface. Recently, he has worked to develop nanotools controlled by holographic optical tweezers to study biological structures.
He has also published over 200 articles during his career and has given over 200 invited talks. He is the Chief Scientific Adviser for IOP Publishing.
