Nano World: Nanotech tools a $700M market

Charles Q. Choi: The instruments and tools needed to work on the nanoscale could, even when excluding the semiconductor industry, will form a $700 million market by 2008, experts told UPI's Nano World.

"Analysts have compared instruments for nanotechnology to shovels for the gold rush," said Nathan Tinker, co-founder and executive vice president of the NanoBusiness Alliance in New York City. The atomic-force microscope "is the granddaddy of nanotechnology tools."
