'Nano' Advances, Fantastic and Mundane
At the nanotechnology show in Lower Manhattan this week, companies touted the state-of-the-art, from quantum dots to microscopes powerful enough to see atoms. And then there were two guys from Cleveland hawking cough syrup.
If you follow the nanotechnology industry closely, this might not surprise you. But if you don't, such humdrum on display alongside the uber-advances at the fourth annual NanoBusiness conference might strike you as unusual.
Spend time with nano-experts and one thing becomes clear: nanotechnology is more commonplace than you might think -- from nano-engineered eyeglass coatings used on one in five pairs of eyeglasses in the United States, to sunscreens and stain-resistant fabrics.
