Analytica 2008 looks to future of nano-analysis

(Nanowerk News) Nanotechnology is a future technology with potential that leading experts say is far from exhausted, and Analytica 2008, Munich, April 1-4, 2008 seeks answers to many small questions.
An article in today takes a look at the field of nano-analysis, a new interdisciplinary technology:
...the development of new or optimised analysis techniques in the nano-range plays an extremely important role when it comes to progress in the future discipline of nanotechnology as a whole.
The reason is obvious: producing nano-scale structures would simply be unthinkable without appropriate analysis techniques.
The techniques and equipment used in nano-analysis serve as a sort of eye for viewing nanostructures and as a finger for touching the structures and making specific alternations.
At the same time, nano-analysis is also an interdisciplinary technology that is used to perform important service functions in other technological sectors.
While nano-analysis of inorganic samples such as semiconductors is already established, ongoing development is still needed to analyze biological systems.
