Episode Description:

This episode examines some of the latest developments in nanotechology, the study of how matter behaves at the smallest possible scale. There are two guests. Z. X. Shen is the Paul Piggott Professor of Physical Sciences at Stanford University. He’s also the former chief scientist at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, a member of the National Academy of Sciences, and winner of numerous awards, including the E. O. Lawrence Award from the U.S. Energy Department, the Oliver Buckley Prize from the American Physical Society, and the Einstein Professorship from the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Much of his work in is in the field of superconductivity and its many practical applications. Nicholas Melosh is Associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Stanford University, a faculty member at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, and winner of the National Science Foundation early career award. Much of his work involves diamonoids, the smallest possible units of diamond, and how they can be used in the creation of arrays of self assembling superconducting nanowires. Both men have their own laboratories at Stanford, where they train and mentor graduate students and postdoctoral students to be the next generation of scientists. Martin Wasserman hosts.
