The Power of Nanotechnology

Abstract:
Russell Cowburn, Professor of nanotechnology at Imperial College London likened nanotechnology to Henry Ford's production line. "In the early days, people would look at Ford's line and say, ‘that's not for my sector of manufacturing; it's only the people who make cars'. In the first instance that was true. But look how it's revolutionized every area of manufacturing. I think the same will be true of nanotechnology. I see it in the medium term as an enabling platform within manufacturing, which will eventually become a day-to-day means to an end."
