6: Saujan Sivaram - We need a fact checking team

Dr. Saujan Sivaram, a recent graduate of the Filler Lab, joins the podcast to talk about semiconductor nanowires. We chat about how these rod-like materials are made, the idea of “functional encoding,” and the challenges that lie ahead. We finish with a discussion of the companies trying (really really hard) to translate nanowires into commercial products. Come for the nano, stay to learn how to pronounce Saujan’s name. (Recorded on March 4, 2016)
