Tech Promises: Booms and Busts

Abstract:
R&D magazine readers also recently selected the "hot technologies" for 2007: 1) nanotechnology/NEMS (nanoelectromechanical systems); 2) anti-bioterrorism devices; and 3) battery/chemical energy. Moreover, energy issues drove many of the selected technologies. R&D readers noted the value that nuclear energy may have in its impact on the overall rise of energy costs and continued its rise notably. Solar/wind power ranked No. 5 in the reader survey. The time it will take for these hot technologies to become commercially viable is another matter.
