From Russia with Love: Next-Gen Modular, Hybrid Nano Tools

An interview on global trends in nanoscience instruments and education with 30-year veteran Barbara Foster, President Microscopy/Marketing & Education, Inc. Foster shares why Russia offers innovative new tools, and some broader lessons for nanoscientists.

Last month, Russian President Vladimir Putin put nanotechnology right at the top of spending priorities for his country - only housing and roads were more important. Many nanoscientists may have briefly raised an eyebrow, and then peered back into their microscope. But, one nanotech expert familiar with Russia says we should take more notice and even take a lesson or two.
