Nanotechnology funding could push frontiers of technology
"Electronic paper" functions like laptop.
Imagine a memory storage device or an electronic circuit only a few thousand atoms in width and made up of molecular-sized components.
These devices may very well be the future of nanotechnology, an area of applied science and engineering devoted to the atom-by-atom design of structures typically less than a hundred nanometres in size.
To put this into perspective, a nanometre is a mere billionth of a metre.
A partnership that will provide $4.5 million over three years towards research and development of materials-based nanotechnology was announced recently.
