Nanotechnology in action

Research on the nanoscale has been an active part of physics/chemistry/materials science (take your pick) for more than three decades now. That's ample time for the fruits of this research to start appearing in our daily lives, and indeed, many innovations have already made that transition. But other potential products seem to get stalled in a sort of grey, pre-dawn twilight. This collection explores some of the challenges and opportunities associated with turning advances in nanotechnology into commercial products.
