How small became really big

Abstract:
However, electronics products will take a longer time to bring to market, with estimations that it may take between 10 and 15 years before the first nanoelectronic devices are commercially available.

Patterson puts into perspective the long lead-in times with this research. "The carbon nanotube is one material that was discovered in the early Nineties. There's been 15 years of research ongoing in that material; it's been put out here as a material that could potentially be used in electronics for a whole host of applications but it has yet to be incorporated into the electronics industry. That's 15 years after its discovery."

The timing factor is something decision makers have to look at. This is a challenge for the government which won't want to fund something indefinitely without seeing a return on investment yet doesn't want to miss the boat either.
