Nanotechnology opportunities exist despite recession

Abstract:
The recession has dealt a severe blow to investments in nanotechnology, but opportunities still exist for companies creating the right products.

Those were the take-aways from a nanotechnology symposium today that drew 100 people to Lehigh University.

David Hwang, an emerging technology analyst with Lux Research, said nanotechnology is being used to make vehicles lighter and more fuel-efficient, which highlights the role it will play in fighting global warming.

"The threat of global warming is forcing industry to change more quickly than ever before," Hwang said, adding that presents opportunities for nanotechnology companies that can make products more efficient.
