When things get really tiny, unfamiliar laws of physics take over! In the world of nano-sized particles, silver can turn your skin blue, gold turns red in color, sand starts to glow, water becomes thick as honey, and punching through a sheet of nano-carbon requires the pressure of an elephant balanced on a pencil tip. This presentation will demo some interesting science, highlight nanotechnology projects in the physics department, and showcase exciting student research, including research to identify the locations and makeup of single molecules using special laser techniques.
