AGENDA          
9:30 am - 10:00am     Concurrent Workshop Sessions I (select one): *
9:30 am - 10:00 am

 Nanobiology Workshop - UH 206

- We will use polyacylamide gel electrophoresis to assess interactions between dyes and nanoparticles.  Modifying nanoparticles with dyes allows visualization of nanoparticles and enhanced photoreactivity.

9:30 am - 10:00 am

 Nanochemistry Workshop - UH 246

- We will assemble and test nanocrystalline dye-sensitized solar cells and learn about how nanomaterials can be used for renewable energy.

9:30 am - 10:00 am

 Nanophysics Workshop - UH 054

a) Nano gold sputtering: We will coat various surfaces with nano gold and check to see how much coating we have by inspecting optically and electrically.

b) Can we see nano coatings: This is more like a magic trick using nano-film. You won't see the film but it works!

c) From micro to nano: We will inspect a few different objects under the digital optical microscope and will get an idea of how small nano is compared to microscopic world.

9:30 am - 10:00 am  Nanoproducts and Safety Workshop - UH 244
10:10 am - 10:40 am  Concurrent Sessions II (select one): *
10:10 am - 10:40 am

 Nanobiology Workshop - UH 206

- We will use polyacylamide gel electrophoresis to assess interactions between dyes and nanoparticles.  Modifying nanoparticles with dyes allows visualization of nanoparticles and enhanced photoreactivity.

10:10 am - 10:40 am

 Nanochemistry Workshop - UH 246

- We will assemble and test nanocrystalline dye-sensitized solar cells and learn about how nanomaterials can be used for renewable energy.

10:10 am - 10:40 am

 Nanophysics Workshop - Room 054

10:10 am - 10:40 am  Nanoproducts and Safety Workshop - UH 244
11:00 am - 11:50 am Poster Session - 1st Floor Lobby, Upham Hall
12:00 pm - 12:50 pm

Keynote Presentation - UH 145

 *For Registered Attendees Only. If attending both Workshop Sessions, make sure to choose two different session types, as workshops in Session1 are the same as the Session 2.
