Topics include, imaging at the nanoscale, buckyballs, graphene, nanomedicine, computing, fibers, and electonics.
The Woodrow Wilson Center's Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies (PEN) created a 6 episode podcast series focused on exciting research and applications in nanotechnology. The podcasts are hosted by Washington DC science reporter Karen Schmidt and cover topics including, nanomedicine, energy, clean water, and synthetic biology. You can stream or download all 6 episodes from the PEN media website.
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) produced a video podcast on the safe development of nanotechnology, as part of their series of nano educational podcasts. The video features University of Michigan's Risk Science Center director Andrew Maynard. The video is one of a series of visual and audio educational resources being developed by ASME on nanotechnology. Additional resources – which include interviews with experts in the field and cover both the applications and implications of nanotechnology – can be accessed at http://nano.asme.org/ Registration is required, but access is free.
