9780137025756: Nanotechnology: Science, Innovation, and Opportunity

Inside the Emerging Multibillion-Dollar Nanotechnology Industry

 

Suddenly, nanotechnology isn't science fiction or mere theory: It's becoming one of the world's fastest-growing, highest-impact industries. In Nanotechnology: Science, Innovation, and Opportunity, the field's leading experts offer an up-to-the-minute briefing on where the industry stands now, how it will unfold over the coming decade, and how it will impact you.

Edited by a key industry advisor, this book covers the latest in nanotech science, technology, and applications. You'll meet the key players, and discover nanotech at work in fields ranging from drug delivery to energy efficiency. Here are the opportunities, the challenges, and the implications: all you need to know about today's nanotech business--and tomorrow's.

Coverage includes

  • How the convergence of nanoscale science foreshadows revolutionary societal change
  • Technical and business obstacles that still challenge the industry
  • Lessons from the early "gold rush" days of biotech: managing the hype
  • Nanotech as disruptive innovation: implications for investors and venture capitalists
  • The evolving roles of entrepreneurs, universities, and the U.S. government
  • Key application areas: materials, microelectronics, sensors, energy, and beyond
  • Bio-Nano-Information fusion: the potential to transform medicine
  • Relevant patent law and intellectual property issues
  • The ethics of nanotechnology

 

"A fascinating look at the art and science of nanotechnology. Hold on to your hats, the world is about to change big time. . . . A comprehensive look at nanotechnology from the perspective of science, investment, IP, and business development with a healthy dose of vision for good measure. First-rate authors with an excellent presentation of the material. Buy this book."
--David Bishop, Ph.D., V.P. of Nanotechnology Research, Bell Labs, Lucent Technologies

"An absolute must-read for every technology sector being impacted by nanotechnology. This book presents the true value of these technologies, delivering a comprehensive prospectus on the science to commercialization of nanotechnology."
--Matthew Laudon, Ph.D., Executive Director, Nano Science & Technology Institute

"This is an excellent book for anyone trying to get a general grasp on the emerging science and technology of nanotechnology in particular for business executives, engineers, or entrepreneurs who are trying to decide what this technology can mean to them."
--Charles H. Volk, Ph.D., V.P. & Chief Technologist, Northrop Grumman, Navigation Systems Division

"Larry Gilbert and Michael Krieger's overview of the university technology transfer process is excellent and provides a realistic perspective and understanding of the commercialization process for technologies developed in the academic environment."
--John Ritter, Director, Office of Technology Licensing, Princeton University

"For a broad, readable introduction to nanotechnology with its attendant entrepreneurial, social, and technological implications, this book is a great start. The most interesting chapter from my perspective was Smalley's on finding abundant, cheap energy sources. Most informative and refreshing. If you have an interest as an intelligent layperson in nanotechnology and its basic motivations and methods, this book will serve as a worthy point of departure in your search."
--Mark S. Petrovic, Ph.D., V.P. of Research and Development, EarthLink

"Get this book if you want to explore any part or the whole field of nanotechnology. I was interested in the many sources of funding for nanotechnology and why each source was doing it. The authors have shown an awareness that nanotechnology must be nurtured by dedicated people to achieve its real potential.
I recommend this book because it treats the potential of nanotechnology in depth and realistically: Riches will come, but much effort is needed in the meantime."
--Bill McLellan, winner of Richard Feynman's Nanotechnology Challenge
