Nanomaterial Integration Lacks Fundamental Developments

Abstract:
The integration path of nanomaterials is full of uncertainties, as nanotechnology companies often fail to communicate their value to end customers, panelists said at the NanoCon International conference held recently in Santa Clara, Calif.

Hilary Lackritz, senior staff engineer and program manager of the Advanced Technology Center, Materials and Structures at Lockheed Martin Space Systems (Palo Alto, Calif.), said that her biggest challenge with nanotech suppliers is their lack of understanding of the space industry's requirements. "Companies tell us they have a great technology," she said. "When asked what problem it will solve, they just say that they have a great technology. I must understand how your technology will solve my problems. Tell us how you can solve our specific problems, not just that you can functionalize seven nanotubes with anything in the world."
