A New Lab Partner For The U.S.?
Beijing is also working hard to lure American-educated Chinese scientists back to the mainland. One way to do that is by hiring returnees such as Han Jie, 48, a University of Utah PhD in materials science and engineering, to run government institutes. Han worked for IBM and for NASA's Ames Center for Nanotechnology before becoming director of a premier Chinese nanotech lab, the National Engineering Research Center for Nanotechnology in Shanghai, last spring. Next year, Han and his team will move to a new $15 million complex equipped with top-of-the line facilities. Among other projects, the center is working on energy-efficient streetlights made from nanomaterials. "In the U.S., we try to build up technology for the future, but in China, I try to build technology that can be used today," Han says.
