Subject Area:
NNI Workshop Reports
Author: National Nanotechnology Initiative
Publication Date: Jun. 18 2005


Report of an NNI workshop seeking research community input on use of x-ray and neutron techniques in nonsocial science, engineering and technology, held in Washington, DC, June 16-18, 2005.

Workshop and report were intended to further the research agenda of the sponsoring agencies and fulfill the goals of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) by identifying research opportunities, stimulating interaction between academic, industrial and government scientists, and identifying improvements to the national research infrastructure need to best support research and development at the nonsocial.  Workshop organizers were the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology, with assistance form the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office and the NSET Subcommittee.

Nanotechnology Fact

Yes, nanotechnology is enabling more and more products every day, from engine catalysts to cancer medicines to stain-proof pants, and everything in between. Revenue from the sale of nanotechnology-enabled products in the United States has grown more than six-fold from 2009 through 2016 and is projected to exceed $500 billion in 2016.
