Nanotechnology to Be Topic of UW-Eau Claire
Alumni Association Speakers Series

RELEASED: Oct. 19, 2006

Let's Do Lunch postcardEAU CLAIRE Nanotechnology is frequently in the news both nationally and locally. Nanotechnology has helped produce new products such as stain-resistant pants, car waxes and car bumpers. The hype is that soon everything will involve nanotechnology. But will nanotechnology be revolutionary or evolutionary?

Dr. Doug Dunham, UW-Eau Claire, associate professor of physics and astronomy and director of the university's Materials Science Center, will give a noon-hour lecture "Nanotechnology: The Reality Behind the Hype" from noon to 1 p.m. Oct. 25 at Sweetwaters restaurant, as part of the "Let's Do Lunch" series hosted by the UW-Eau Claire Alumni Association.

Dunham earned a bachelor's degree from Beloit College and a master's degree and doctorate in physics from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He was a postdoctoral researcher for Northern Illinois University working at the Synchrotron Radiation Center and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. His primary research area focuses on the study of semiconductor interfaces by x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.

The next "Let's Do Lunch" speaker will be Pat Dillon, northwest regional director, Wisconsin Entrepreneurs' Network, on Nov. 29. Her lecture is "The Wisconsin Entrepreneurs' Network: A Force for Innovation in Our State."

The speaker series is open to the public. The cost is $10 per session and includes the presentation, buffet, beverage, tax and tip. To reserve tickets, send e-mail to alumni@uwec.edu or call 715-836-3266 for more information
