Nanotechnology promises have gone unfulfilled, says Stanford prof

Abstract:
Thomas Kenny, Ph.D., Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University, told attendees of the MEMS Technology Summit (10/19-10/20/10, Stanford University) that nanotechnology promises have gone unfulfilled. "If we define a technology as the ability to make something exactly the way we want it, over and over, we do not have this capability at the nanoscale for many structures," said Kenny. He also argues that the MEMS industry is undergoing an identity shift, if not an identity crisis.
