R&D’s Hot Tech for 2007

Abstract:
Readers selected the "hot technologies" for 2007 from a list of 70 alphabetically arranged choices, starting with "anti-bioterrorism devices "and ending with "x-ray". The results (see bar chart with the top choices) were somewhat similar to those obtained over the past two years with some shuffling of the top picks. Nanotechnology/NEMS (nanoelectromechanical systems) was the top choice this year with 39.4% of the responses—it was the third choice in 2005 with 34% of the responses and No. 2 in 2004 with 40% of the responses. Anti-bioterrorism devices was the second most-selected hot technology this year with 37% of the responses—it was the top choice in 2005 (39%) and No. 3 in 2004 (30%). Battery/chemical energy was the third most-selected technology for 2007—it was No. 4 in 2005 (30%) and No. 5 in 2004 (20%).
