Reference Metrology=Red Bricks?

Abstract:
Reference metrology is crucial for advanced technologies such as nanotech, where quantum dimensional effects are becoming problematical. The industry is increasingly requiring some form of reference metrology and, although nanotech will have grown to a revenue level comparable with that of mainstream semiconductors over the next five years or so, there is insufficient activity in reference metrology, particularly as it refers to nanotech, although it is even more crucial for its continued development and continuity.

Reference metrology is difficult and costly because it is extremely complicated and must be 10× better than baseline metrology. To add to this metrological Gordian knot, the reference metrology market is relatively small and returns are very low, making finding investors or venture capitalists as easy as getting a good home loan.
