Useful Nanotechnologies Based on Molecular Information Handling
Prof. Prasanna de Silva’s seminar, themed “Useful Nanotechnologies Based on Molecular Information Handling”, was held at the Auditorium, Dept of Chemistry, University of Colombo. The seminar attracted more than 120 people from undergraduates, graduate students, academics and industry personnel. In his lecture he described his own pioneering work that started in the chemistry labs of University of Colombo and culminated in Belfast. He noted that a current 60M$ market activity based on this work by a Swiss firm was first used in Sri Lankan Ambulance services during the days of conflict. The presentation demonstrated what one can do if there is will, focus and the right attitude within a conducive atmosphere. The promise and the potential of Chemistry in Computing surpassing the current systems in place were presented by Prof AP based on his own concepts of “Lab-as-a-Molecule” and was a preview of things to come.
