Author: National Nanotechnology Initiative
Publication Date: Mar. 18 2004

Description:

Report of an NNI workshop to identify and articulate the relationship of nanoscale science and technology to the United States’ energy future, held March 16-18, 2004. Report also addresses the Grand Challenge in Energy Conversion and Storage set out in the National Nanotechnology Initiative Supplement to the President’s FY 2004 Budget.  It was used as input for the NNI Strategic Plan released in December 2004.  Meeting was jointly sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and, through the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office, the other member agencies of the NSET Subcommittee. 


Nanotechnology Fact

The term "nanomaterial" refers to nanoscale materials, or materials that contain nanoscale structures internally or on their surfaces. These can include engineered (or man-made) nanometer-scale objects such as nanoparticles, nanotubes, and nanofilms, as well as naturally occurring nanoparticles such as volcanic ash, sea spray, and smoke.
