Cafe Scientifique Orlando is a gathering of scientifically-inclined people in Central Florida, who meet at a cafe, coffee house, pub, or nonacademic location to discuss events and ideas in the world of science. We enjoy beer and wine, and we use plain language to talk about extraordinary ideas.
Only a few years ago, the science and engineering of manipulating matter at the atomic and molecular level seemed to be a promise of enormous changes to come in a few decades. Instead, the results of nanoscience quietly sneaked into our everyday lives yesterday. Prof Rahman will talk about nanoscience, its brief history, and its current state.
Dr. Talat Rahman is the UCF Physics Chair and a UCF Provost Distinguished Research Professor. Her research interests are first principles calculations of nanoscale phenomena (chemical reactions, molecular diffusion, vibrational dynamics and thermodynamics of nanomaterials); multiscale-modeling offunctional material; structural stability and characteristics of nanoalloys; atomistic studies of diffusion at solid surfaces; thin film growth processes and surface morphological evolution of nanostructures.
