DIANE Publishing, May 1, 2011 - 50 pages
Nanotechnology (NT) -- a term encompassing the science, engineering, and applications of sub-micron materials -- involves the harnessing of unique physical, chemical, and biological properties of nanoscale substances in fundamentally new and useful ways. The economic and societal promise of NT has led to substantial and sustained investments by governments and co. around the world. In 2000, the U.S, launched the world's first national NT program. From FY 2001 through FY 2010, the fed. gov't. invested $12.4 billion in nanoscale science, engineering, and technology through the NNI. Contents of this report: Intro.; Overview; NNI; Selected NNI Reports and Assessments; NT Legislation in the 111th Congress. Illus. A print on demand report.
