Nanotechnology Update: U.S., Europe, Japan Lead the Way; China Moving Up

Does the future of computing lie in nanotechnology? It's always possible. There is an ongoing trend, after all, for computers to get smaller and smaller, cramming increasing performance power and storage into smaller physical footprints.

Nanotechnology, which Wikipedia defines as "the control of matter on a scale smaller than 100 nanometers, as well as the fabrication of devices on this same length scale," has very broad applications, spanning a myriad of disciplines including colloidal science, chemistry, applied physics, materials science, and mechanical/electrical engineering.
