Rebuilding Things Atom by Atom

Abstract:
Nanoscience expert Chad Mirkin discusses the promise of supersmall materials, what breakthroughs are likely, and what's just hype.

"You're going to see everything from stain resistance in clothing to high-tech medical diagnostic applications and revolutions in semiconductors. It means vastly more powerful computers. Even the cosmetic industry is interested in these materials. They can be used to make tailor-made cosmetics. Nanotechnology involves rebuilding the earth as we know it, atom by atom."
