According to scientists and market analysts, the world is on the cusp of a nanotechnology revolution: The teeny, tiny materials and devices are beginning to show up everywhere from clothing and sporting goods to computer electronics and medical equipment.
But a limitation to the pending revolution is the high expense and inefficiency of making materials and devices at the nanoscale, according to Gregory Rorrer, a chemical engineer at Oregon State University in Corvallis.
Rorrer believes a solution to the problem may lie in diatoms, single-celled marine life-forms that have been around since the age of the dinosaurs.
