Inframat, NanoOpto, NanoFilm, Nanoink and Nanodynamics: Nanotechnology may see exits this year - analysis

Abstract:
Nanotechnology has never experienced a high-profile exit. Pundits consider nanotechnology, a field dealing with substances smaller than a micrometer for applications as diverse as medicine, semiconductors and cosmetics, interesting research but meagre business. Five years ago nanotechnology enthusiasts touted these miniscule particles as a means to alter mankind by manipulating DNA to create "nanobots," "shaping" atoms into new substances and the like. But venture capitalists burned by the tech bubble showed reserved interest, and since then, some entrepreneurs have found nanotech useful in such mundane products as paint, insulation and golf balls.
