I am a member of a MeetUp.com group called Atlanta Science Tavern. The organizer of the group arranged for us to have a tour of the nanotechnology building. It was truly fascinating. They have two types of ‘clean rooms’ where students can design circuits. One of the areas is ‘clean’ and the other area is ‘cleaner’ – more air filtration for finer particles in the air. We also saw an electron microscope.  A couple of the graduate students told the group how different metals have different conductive properties. The graduate students and faculty answered questions at the end of the meeting and they talked about their research – which was far over my head of understanding.  They also provided us with pizza and soda at the end. As usual, I have included many pictures and hope that you enjoy seeing them.
