At the University of Washington's Physics Department, a German won the Nobel Prize, the leading nanotechnology researcher is British and about half of the post-doctoral students come from other countries. Nationality was not considered an impediment to research before, but it might be under new regulations proposed by the U.S. Commerce Department.
UW Chemistry Professor Younan Xia said his research on nanotechnology also could suffer if instruments or technologies land on the restricted list. Half of the post-doctoral students in his department are from China on temporary visas, making them subject to the restrictions. "If they really put it into effect, it will stop research in the United States," Xia said.
