Nanoforum reports on security for nanotechnology

Abstract:
Nanoforum, the European information exchange for nanotechnology matters, has reported on security applications for tiny tech.

Nanotechnology has been a key EU priority. The EU has spent several hundred millions of pounds researching the technology. Three research projects have dealt specifically with security applications.

TERAEYE aims to develop a range of passive inspection systems, based on terahertz (THz) wave detection, to detect materials harmful for homeland security. DINAMICS is developing a lab-on-chip device to detect pathogens in water supply systems. NANOSECURE aims to be a widely-deployed early warning and detoxification system for harmful airborne substances.
