Advanced Materials and Nanoscience


Nanoscience and materials science are where physics and chemistry meet for the benefit of mankind. Nanotechnology is being used to develop smaller and more powerful electronic devices, lasers, medical diagnostics and materials with completely new properties. This department of Petrotex Society is a multidisciplinary research and education department, coordinating efforts across the internationally recognized strengths of Petrotex members in nanoscience and advance materials.
