Nanoengineering discovery could lead to enhanced electronics

Incorporation of nanomaterials with dimensions of less than 10 nm into functional devices has been hindered by the disparity between their size and the 100 nm feature sizes that can be routinely generated by lithography. Biomolecules offer a bridge between the two size regimes, with sub-10 nm dimensions, synthetic flexibility and a capability for self-recognition.

Report on the 5th NanoRegulation Conference available for download

The 5th Int. NanoRegulation Conference took place from 25th to 26th of November in Rapperswil, Switzerland, and tackled the issue of 'No Data, no Market?' - Challenges to Nano-Information and Nano-Communication along the Value Chain. During the two-days Conference, a number of leading nanotechnology stakeholders presented their views and expectations regarding information and data exchange along the value chain, and discussed possible approaches to the problem in workshops. The Conference report which has been released now outlines the positions from the participating stakeholders from industry, authorities and various NGOs and international organisations.
