Law school receives nanotechnology grant

Abstract:
The Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law received a grant recently to research the legal effects of a technology that could be woreth more than $1 trillion in less than a decade.

The $314,000 grant came from the Department of Energy and will be used to anticipate and offer legal solutions for the regulation of nanotechnology, said Dr. Gary Marchant, executive director for the Center for Law, Science and Technology within the College of Law.

Nanotechnology is the study of matter on an ultra-small scale.

Marchant, one of the three ASU faculty to receive the federal grant, said nanotechnology could be a part of 10 to 15 percent of the U.S. economy and also be a vital component of the world economy in several years.
