Inside CRN, Part 5
Mike Treder: CRN's research is concentrated on what might be called the middle period of nanotechnology development, the point between today's nanoscale technologies and the fantastic possibilities of the further future (again, the recurring theme of CRN being in the middle).
In response to the negative associations of 'molecular nanotechnology' and 'MNT' with visionary universal assemblers, we made an attempt in the latter half of 2003 to distinguish this middle period as dealing with a limited version of molecular nanotechnology, or LMNT.
