Electronics takes the lead

Abstract:
For a while there, it looked like nanomaterials applications – better golf balls, cleaner pants and cleaner-burning catalysts – were going to define the nanotech space for the foreseeable future. And if mainstream press reports are any guide, they are certainly having their day. But look out, because by the time you’re done marveling at your stain-free Dockers, the semiconductor industry will have grabbed this sector by the nanohorns and redefined it as a next-generation electronics technology. Forget cleaner pants and farther-flying golf balls; we’re talking nano-based computer memory, cell phone displays made from organic molecules and fabrics that convert sunlight into electricity.
