Nanotech Manufacturing Process Technician: These are skilled production technicians who use top-down and bottom-up nano tools to develop and implement the manufacturing process for nanotechnology
in sensors, processing and process control -- Using nonobtrusive, nanoscale sensors for monitoring and control during wood and wood-based materials processing, to provide data on product performance and environmental conditions during end use service, and to impart multifunctional capabilities to products.
is being hailed in some quarters as the force behind a new Industrial Revolution because it is expected to affect virtually all industries.
The first swells presaging the approaching nanotechnology
tidal wave have already reached the shore.
Terrified of being dismissed as a Luddite, I am certainly not suggesting that all or even most nanotechnology
public offerings will end in disaster (though, as The Wall Street Journal recently pointed out, the record for biotechnology startups dating back to the 1980s is not particularly good).
Wary that nanotechnology
could suffer the same political setbacks that have slowed adoption of genetically modified crops, researchers and policy makers are trying to get ahead of the game.
The advocates of a nanotech moratorium are apt to find a sympathetic audience among the "nanoethicists" who are emerging as a result of the National Nanotechnology
International industry giant L'Oreal has surfaced as an early adopter of nanotechnology
Ortyl, Chairman and CEO of Standard MEMS, said, "We are pleased to be in NIST's nanotechnology
is like biotechnology and genetic engineering on steroids.
u The market for textiles using Nanotechnology

Because many of the building blocks used in paper and board manufacture are nanodimensional, we will benefit from the enormous amount of money the whole world is investing in nanotechnology
," commented Dr.
In the same way that miniaturization has changed the world of electronics, nanotechnology
has the potential to revolutionize the fields of medicine, pharmaceuticals, drug delivery systems, biotechnology, energy, environmental remediation, and much more.
But Al Gore, the subcommittee chairman and the man who within the next few days would be announced as Bill Clinton's running mate, was a big fan of nanotechnology
, as envisioned by conference chairman and engineer Eric Drexler, would mean getting personal with molecular individuals.
