EECS Special Lecture - Professor Millie Dresselhaus on Bismuth Nanowires: Structure and Properties

Institute Professor Millie Dresselhaus provides an engaging introduction to the complex world of nanostructures, nanowires and thermoelectrics.

Institute Professor Millie Dresselhaus provides an engaging introduction to the complex world of nanostructures, nanowires and thermoelectrics.

Mildred (Millie) Dresselhaus, renowned as the “queen of carbon science,” delivers the first in a series of special lectures at EECS (MIT Dept. of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science).

The first female Institute Professor and professor emerita of physics and engineering at MIT, Prof. Dresselhaus provides a clear and engaging introduction to the complex world of nanostructures, nanowires, thermoelectrics, and cutting-edge research with bismuth nanowires.  She shares how she navigates the push-and-pull between practical and theoretical aspects of engineering and scientific work, and provides an illuminating glimpse into the processes of discovery and development of a new field of research. Her talk exemplifies why she was a beloved teacher for many years at MIT.
