Revolutionary Nanotechnology: Wet or Dry?
Somewhere along the line, the advocates for molecular nanotechnology (MNT) seem to have lost interest in actually seeing molecular manufacturing come to pass if it meant that the concepts of the mechanically engineered approach (Dry) are abandoned in favor of a biologically engineered method (Wet).
The MNT community has been striving over the past six years to bring the focus of nanotechnology back to molecular manufacturing—or "radical nanotechnology" or "revolutionary nanotechnology" after being usurped in attention and funding by the nanomaterials initiative, exemplified by the National Nanotechnology Initiative in the US.
