A new exhibit has opened at the Bradbury Science Museum in Los Alamos, New Mexico, featuring a general introduction to metamaterials, some of the more recent work in this area by Brener, Chen and CINT’s users, and one of the RF cloaks from the Center for Metamaterials and Integrated Plasmonics at Duke University. The nanotechnology exhibit focuses on the staff, users and science of the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies, based at Los Alamos and Sandia National Laboratories. "Nanotechnology - The Science of the Small" demonstrates the importance of understanding how nanoparticles work. Visitors can learn about the nanoscale, why research at the nanoscale is important, and what it is about the nanoscale that makes particles and their assemblies behave differently.
