Ahmadinejad Gifts Iranian Nanoscope to Qatari Emir

Iran | Posted on September 7th, 2010

"This is a gift from the Iranian technology to Qatar. You can use it in educational and research centers," Ahmadinejad said, addressing the Qatari Emir.

During the press conference, Ahmadinejad also pointed to the fact that the device had been made by Iranian specialists and only five other countries apart from Iran are able to make the device.

After receiving the gift, the Emir of Qatar stated, "In 1960s during Gamal Abdel Nasser rule, Iran gave a present to Qatar, which we still keep. We are happy to receive this present today and we will protect this present too."

Ahmadinejad had presented two other nanoscopes to the Brazilian and Venezuelan Presidents before.

During his visit to the nanotechnology stall in 'Made in Iran Exhibition' in May 2010 in Doha, the Qatari Minister of Energy and Industry observed closely the abilities of the nanoscope, and he described Iran's progress in the field of nanotechnology as "very interesting".

The production of the Iranian nanoscope, commercially known as NAMA, began in May 2007. In addition to the noticeable technical progress of the nanoscope, a considerable number of this device has been sold to the domestic and international research centers and universities. It also provides researchers in nanotechnology with analytic services.
