Nanotechnology: Enough with the wet/dry debate already

Abstract:
Wet approaches have always been very popular here at Foresight, and also with the Technology Roadmap for Productive Nanosystems, as will be clear shortly when the launch conference program is posted.

There is some debate on how "dry" eventual nanosystems can be. To date, I have not heard conclusive arguments that they can't be quite dry indeed. Time will tell. Meanwhile, there's plenty of enthusiasm for different pathways, wet and dry, as the Roadmap launch conference will discuss.

I have dealt with this issue before. Let's hope it will now quiet down. Multiple R&D pathways should be and are being pursued; they will all have payoffs of one kind or another, and we should expect interesting and profitable synergies as well. —Christine
