National Science Foundation ‘Science Café Series’
Western Nevada College physics instructor Thomas Herring, Ph.D., will explore the nature and potential applications of graphene in a lecture on Saturday, Sept. 29, 2 p.m., at Swill Coffee & Wine, 3366 Lakeside Court in Reno.
The lecture is part of the National Science Foundation’s Science Café Series.
Dr. Herring’s talk, “Graphene: What Is It and What Is It For?” will cover a brief history of graphene, a pure form of carbon. “The really exotic thing about it is that it is only one atom thick,” Herring said. Its honeycomb shaped atomic structure offers a large range of interesting properties and possible applications.
The discussion will also detail where graphene research might proceed and what the material’s short- and long-term uses might be.
