NIMET Translation Seminar by Jeffrey Rogers

Dr. Rogers helped rapidly develop and deploy advanced sensor technology at scale to achieve breakthrough understanding of TBI in the military through both detailed physics and big-data analysis. While the risk of traumatic brain injury (TBI) has become a health focus for athletics and militaries worldwide, data from fielding over 150,000 individually wearable sensors questions common assumptions about the sources of those risks. This talk will review findings from two years of sensor system use by high-risk military and first responder groups. A representative set of the over 5,000 recorded incidents will be reviewed, along with detailed event recreations. While the expected inertial injuries are observed, the majority of the hazardous incidents are found to be unreported overpressure events during training.

NIMET Nanotechnology Seminar by Prof. Andrew Rinzler

Today’s explosion of research in nanoscience and nanotechnology owes much to the first prototypical nanoscale materials: buckyballs, nanotubes and graphene. That 30 year evolution, which continues its remarkable growth through to the present, makes for an interesting story. NIMET Nanotechnology Seminar by Prof. Andrew Rinzler, who was a postdoc in Richard Smalley's laboratory and saw the birth of carbon-based nanotechnology. In this seminar, titled "Bucky Grows Up!", Prof. Rinzler will describe how today’s explosion of research in nanoscience and nanotechnology owes much to the first prototypical nanoscale materials: buckyballs, nanotubes and graphene. That 30 year evolution, which continues its remarkable growth through to the present, makes for an interesting story.
