The American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund presents
Physical Chemistry on the Nanometer
Washington State University
July 27 - August 3
Nanotechnology has been proclaimed as the
"Next Industrial Revolution"
We are seeking graduate students, postdoctoral
fellows, as well as two and four-year college faculty who desire
to learn about techniques for observing and manipulating, and
the principles that govern, materials and devices composed of
small collections of atoms or molecules.
Our goal is to generate the teachers and researchers who will
provide the critical needs of manpower development and fundamental
research on the nanometer scale. In particular, we will focus
on the interface between physics, chemistry, materials science,
and biophysics that is most conveniently described as Physical
Chemistry on the Nanometer Scale.
Eight outstanding scientists from
all of these disciplines have agreed to present both the fundamentals
and the exciting frontiers of their specialties at this summer
The organizers have received a grant from The American Chemical
Society Petroleum Research Fund to subsidize up to 70 participants.
It is planned that ALL participants who are accepted will receive
either partially or fully subsidized registration fees, which
include the following:
