Abstract
Enhanced abilities to understand and manipulate matter at the molecular and atomic levels
promise a wave of significant new technologies over the next five decades. Dramatic
breakthroughs will occur in dive
rse areas such as medicine, communications, computing,
energy, and robotics. These changes will generate large amounts of wealth and force
wrenching changes in existing markets and institutions.
This paper discusses the range of sciences currently covered by nanotechnology. It begins
with a description of what nanotechnology is and how it relates to previous scientific
advances. It then describes the most likely future development of different technologies in a
variety of fields. The paper also reviews the government’s current nanotechnology policy
and makes some suggestions for improvement.
