Nanomaterials will be the topic of a free seminar at 7 p.m. today at the Keewaydin branch of the Mid-Columbia Library, 405 S. Dayton St., Kennewick.
Glen Fryxell, who has worked at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratories for 22 years, will explain what nanomaterials are, how they are made and what they can be used for.
He is named the inventor on 16 U.S. patents, most of which deal with nanomaterials and their uses. And he was named a Battelle Distinguished Inventor in 2009.
The public seminar is part of the Community Science and Technology Seminar Series. For information, call 375-6871 or go to regionaloutreach.pnl.gov/seminars/.
