A musician who may change how you look at the world. Canadian singer/songwriter Justin Hines’ latest album, “Days to Recall,” marks his American debut. His music is uplifting and heartfelt, overflowing with natural optimism, although he is no stranger to challenges.

Examples of nanoscale structures include films, nanoclusters, nanoparticles, nanocrystals and nanotubes. Shand will discuss the physics and applications of magnetism at the nanoscale. Technologies based upon nanoscale magnetism will be discussed as well as current research in magnetic nanostructures at UNI.
