Episode 75 - Nanotech interview with John Donovan at the University of Oregon

This week I have a long interview I did a few weeks ago John Donovan. John is the Director of the MicroAnalytical Facility at the University of Oregon's CAMCOR, Center for Advanced Materials Characterization. I got a tour of the whole facility and we talked about all the different kinds of nanotechnology scanning and imaging done at the facility.
