Abstract:

This document reviews the research area of nanosciencenanotechnology, both within and outside of NRL. Rapid developments in frontiers related to miniaturization have taken place in the last several years, in microelectronics and microelectronic devices, optical materials, biotechnology, structural materials, tunneling tip microscopy and the field of proximal probes, and microelectromechanical systems MEMS. Important developments are expected for electronics and computers, sensors, materials, biological behavior, and a number of devices. An overview of these areas is preliminary to examining priorities for investment in this field. This document is an attempt to provide an overview of these diverse efforts, particularly where the Naval Research Laboratory has significant interests. Nanoscience, Nanoelectronics, Nanotechnology, Miniaturization technologies.
