Oregon's nanotech researchers are thinking commercialization

When Congress passed the $3.7 billion 21st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act last year, hopes blossomed among Oregon's academics. Among the bill's sponsors was their own senator, Democrat Ron Wyden. When the money begins to flow in 2005, Oregon will be ready. Researchers at University of Oregon (UO), Oregon State University (OSU) and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, Wash., are already working on a number of nanotech and microtech projects funded by several federal agencies.
