Science is a small thing

Abstract:
Nanotechnology — the ability to make products of unimaginably small sizes with atomic precision — is ending up worldwide on labs-on-chips, car bumpers, longer-lasting tennis racquets, golf balls, sunscreens to burn dressings. It’s causing a scramble to pre-fix and book Nano names for companies.

Almost a decade since nano research arrived here, India averages 20 nanotech patents annually. ‘‘India holds an absurdly small number of nano patents,’’ says Sastry, a nano-scientist at Pune’s National Chemical Laboratory (NCL). ‘‘We are behind the rest of the world by at least six years.’’
