Focusing on the nanorealm

The pragmatic visionaries of NINT could be forgiven a quiet groan at yet another prediction that research into the very, very small will soon yield very, very big payoffs. The National Institute of Nanotechnology here is intended as the main focal point for Canada's as yet largely unfocused bid to elbow into the nanorealm, a field that even cautious experts say could usher in a new industrial revolution. Eventually. Maybe in two or three decades. Maybe longer. So far, however, what's happening in NINT's temporary quarters at the University of Alberta is as much basic science as technology, and not always strictly nano either.
