Mildred S. Dresselhaus--CAES ILP Distinguished Lecture Series

In 1996, while a guest speaker for the CAES ILP Distinguished Lecture Series, MIT Institute Professor Mildred S. Dresselhaus gave a talk titled "New Frontiers in Carbon Research--A Discussion of Recent Discoveries." In this excerpt, Dresselhaus uses a soccer ball as a prop (spherical fullerenes are also called buckyballs and they resemble soccer balls) to illustrate spherical fullerenes and carbon nanotubes.
