UTD Scientist Dr. Ray Baughman To Explain Team's Recent Breakthrough in Nanotechnology
by Roman Kikta    Mon, Nov 7, 2005, 01:38 AM

Dr. Ray Baughman, director of the NanoTech Institute at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD), will give a presentation Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2005 on the much-publicized breakthrough in the field of nanotechnology that he and his UTD colleagues, along with Australian collaborator Dr. Ken Atkinson of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), a national laboratory in Australia announced recently.

The team's work produced transparent carbon nanotube sheets that were stronger than same-weight steel sheets and had demonstrated applicability in a number of commercial areas. Dr. Baughman team's paper originally was published in the prestigious journal, Science, and subsequently was written about in newspapers and magazines around the world. The story was given Page One coverage in the Dallas Morning News.

Dr. Baughman will give his presentation from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Texas Instruments Auditorium (ECSS 2.102) of the south building of the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Sciences on the UTD campus. The title of the presentation will be "Manufacture and Application of Multifunctional Nanotube Yarns and Textiles."

The presentation is free and open to the public. News Contact: Beth Keithly, UTD, (972) 883-4568, This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
