The Sri Lanka Institute of Nanotechnology (SLINTEC) will launch a certificate course in nanotechnology which will be the first of its kind in Sri Lanka. 

The course will be conducted over four Saturdays starting 9 January 2016 by senior SLINTEC personnel and will introduce the underlying principles and applications of the emerging fields of nanotechnology and nanoscience.  

Course instruction will be delivered through a combination of lectures and practical sessions bringing together relevant knowledge from physics, chemistry and biology to provide a fundamental understanding of the integrated multidisciplinary nature of nanotechnology.



Course content includes topics such as an introduction to nanotechnology, applications of various nanomaterials, fabrication methods in nanotechnology and characterisation methods in nanotechnology (XRD, AFM, SEM and TEM).

Students completing the course can expect to acquire a working knowledge of nanotechnology principles and an appreciation for its application in the industry. Although it primarily targets BSc graduates and researchers in the private sector, government sector and academic institutions, anyone interested in acquiring an understanding of nanotechnology and its applications is encouraged to attend the course. 

SLINTEC was established in 2008 as a public-private partnership between the Government of Sri Lanka and six private companies, namely MAS Holdings, Brandix, Dialog, Hayleys, Loadstar and Lankem. Its mandate is to add value to Sri Lankan industries by helping them contribute to the GDP through innovations in nanotechnology and advanced technologies.”

I have rarely if ever empathised with the Sri Lanka Police Department. But when I saw those hapless cops ducking chilli bombs in Parliament, my heart went out to those whom I had previously seen as simply being PC Plods or Mr Goons. Sorry to say that

Leaving aside the legalities, politicalities, constitutionalities and the complexities of the current imbroglio in which the nation is grounded (temporarily), the underlying issues in the constitutional crisis can be reduced to one single question: a
