PBS Nightly Business Report Features Maryland NanoCenter, MEMS Lab


PBS's Nightly Business Report aired a segment on nanotechnology featuring the Maryland NanoCenter on Wednesday, November 23, 2005. Footage for the segment was filmed during a visit to campus in August, which included a tour of Associate Professor Reza Ghodssi's (ECE/ISR) MEMS Sensors and Actuators Lab.

The program could be viewed locally on WETA (channel 26) at 6:30 pm and on Maryland Public Television (channel 22) at 7:00 pm.

A transcript of the segment, titled The Science & Business of Nanotechnology, includes an interview with Minta Martin Professor and NanoCenter Director Dr. Gary Rubloff (ECE/ISR), and can be found on the Nightly Business Report website.
