Connecticut Folds Its Hand On Nano Bet

Abstract:
Mark A. Reed and his Yale colleagues have fashioned nano-wires one millionth of the diameter of a human hair, which hold the promise of hand-held medical scanners that can do blood work and find cancer cells in minutes.

Reed's nanotechnology laboratory has also fabricated the world's smallest transistor, a six-atom ring between two gold electrodes. When translated into practical devices, miniature supercomputers made with molecule-sized transistors could stay cool by using less energy.

At the University of Connecticut at Storrs, Fotis Papadimitrakopoulos is trying to coax molecules to reap solar energy by employing a process that green plants have been using for eons.

Reed's and Papadimitrakopoulos's universities are knee-deep in the world of nanotechnology, which has the potential to revolutionize electronics, energy production, pharmaceuticals, the ways diseases are diagnosed, communication.

Connecticut's government wanted to jump into the nano quest with the two universities as way to boost the economy, and give the researchers needed new equipment. But, unlike some other states, it has pulled back before starting.
