What is nanotechnolgy?

billionith of a meter

enginnering of functional systems at the molecular level

science below 100 nm

method of controlling matter at near-atomic scales to produce unique or enhanced materials, products and devices

activities at the level of atoms and molecules that have applications in the real world.

How is it used?

Computing

quantum cryptography

computer chips, IBM ’s Self assembling nano-technology now allows chips to run 35% faster and changes the conventional chip making technology.

Bioinformatics

computational molecular biology, the use of computers to store, search and characterize the genetic code of genes, the proteins linked to each gene and their associated functions.

Medical Advances, Possibility to regenerate tissues, organs, and nerve cells so they can repair themselves

Gene Therepy

Telecommunications

mobile phones, goal may be to use super-small technologies to make phones strong, more wear-resistant and even self-cleaning

RF MEMS

wireless networks

Packaging

lighter and stronger materials

better insulation

less gas absorption

Opportunities

smaller devices

building bottom-up devices

faster processing speeds

World Nanotech Market

It is estimated that by 2025, India and China will jointly dominate the world trade completely and there may be a situation that an international company can only survive in the West if it can market to India-China block.

YASHNANOTECH

Market for nanotech in China likely to reach USD 31.4 billion by 2010

China's market share likely to be more than 6% by 2010

Dr. Xu Zhengzhong, Deputy President of CNANE

Research

a good bit of research id done by the government through military facilities.  Dont forget those.  YOu might want to take a look at the China project we did two years ago.  ONe of the articles broke down the tech centers in China.  We were looking at Fiber Optics at the time but I suspect that there were some leads about nanotech as well.
