Abstract : Imagine a single area of scientific discovery with the potential to enable a wealth of innovative new technologies across a vast array of fields including healthcare, information technology, energy production and utilization, homeland security and national defense, biotechnology, food and agriculture, aerospace, manufacturing, and environmental improvement. Nanoscience, the study of the unique properties of matter that occur at extremely small scales, has this potential. Advances in nanoscience and nanoengineering are already ushering in new applications or nanotechnologies that are leading to improved products across a broad realm of sectors, from textiles to electronics. Some of these improved products are already available, including improved catalysts, stain resistant fabrics, better sunscreens, superior dental bonding materials, high resolution printer inks, digital camera displays, and high capacity computer hard disks, to name a few.
