Nanotechnology Highlights for 2006
There were many significant nanotechnology developments in 2006. Choosing the top few is a very difficult task but Josh Wolfe at Forbes took a stab at it and I've used his outline. It's a good journal to subscribe to because they provide good insight into R&D and industry activity and trends.
As expected, most of the nanotechnolgy breakthroughs came from academia but a couple were mentioned as coming from the Corporate sector. The two are Motorola's carbon nanotube display which is ready to leave the laboratory and hit the market and IBM's carbon nanotube circuit. By the way, Josh Wolfe was not coerced by Motorola to rank us among the top Corporate nano performers. Our very own Jim Jaskie should be commended for leading the nanoemissive display program.
