Keeping Nanotech at Home
“Just discussing export controls in our country, while Europe and Asia are making progress, could have a chilling effect on U.S. leadership in this area,” Senator Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) told NanoBusiness Conference attendees over cocktails early this week in New York City.
The senator also sent a letter to recently appointed Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez criticizing potential nanotech export controls. Mr. Wyden and others fear that limits on sales to foreign entities will encourage American nanotech companies to relocate overseas, undermining the country’s head start in the field.
