Subject Area:
NNI Workshop Reports
Author: National Nanotechnology Initiative
Publication Date: Jan. 29 2004

Description:

Report on an NNI workshop seeking research community input regarding capabilities needed for instrumentation and metrology for nanotechnology, held  January 27-29, 2004.

An NNI workshop held under auspices of the Nanoscale Science, Engineering and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee to help develop the research agenda relating to capabilities needed for instrumentation and metrology for nanotechnology.  Used in development of the National Nanotechnology Initiative Strategic Plan released in December 2004.  Session was jointly sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Technology Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce and, through the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office, the other members of the NSET Subcommittee.


Nanotechnology Fact

The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) is a U.S. Government research and development (R&D) initiative involving the nanotechnology-related activities of 20 departments and independent agencies. Since 2001, Federal agencies and Cabinet-level departments have invested more than $25 billion in nanotechnology research, development, and commercialization. These investments, made under the auspices of the NNI, have enabled groundbreaking discoveries that have revolutionized science; established world-class facilities for the characterization of nanoscale materials and their fabrication into nanoscale devices; educated tens of thousands of individuals from undergraduate students to postdoctoral researchers; and fostered the responsible incorporation of nanotechnology into commercial products.
