Sharing Nanotechnology Knowledge
Welcome to the May 2005 issue
||Welcome to Nano World News!
Nano World News is a monthly newsletter which seeks to inform the broad range of professionals representing the multi-disciplinary and multi-sector community integrated by nanotechnology. Each issue focuses on the research, development and business of nanotechnology and its numerous pulling indsustries. This publication will be used to selectively deliver technology and commercial news from the growing range of industrial sectors impacted by emerging nanotechnologies. In some cases, our writers and reporters take a deep look into a timely and influential topic, while in others we provide a snapshot of significant advancements or actions that are deemed to be important to the community when considered through a broad multi-market view.
Featured articles such as "Dynamic Self-Assembly: Nano-Structured Fluids' Hidden Gold" or "Nanotech Poised To Fire Up Medicine's Next Revolution" demonstrates how nanotechnology takes a collaborative effort from all members of the ecosystem to address large world markets and to solve the world's biggest challenges.

- From Polio to Cancer - Nanotech Diagnosis and Delivery Tools are Key...
ago, in 1955, Jonas Salk unlocked the secrets of the polio
vaccine. Soon after, children could take a pill, rather than
a needle, thanks to the work of Albert Sabin. Both were
aided by new technologies of the time that provided better
imaging, quicker diagnosis, and easier delivery. Today, 50
years later, cancer researchers say many areas of
nanotechnology -- not simply bio-nano -- will provide the
next wave of precision research and delivery tools, and in
the bargain set the stage for the next Salk and

- Raith's e_LiNE Breaks Nano Research Barriers - Allows Scientists To Fabricate, Relocate, Test and Modify Devices With One Instrument
research dives deeper into extremely small-scale dimensions
of 50 nanometers and below, a new set of challenges face
engineers and scientists: Most instruments just don't
provide the level of control and precision needed to
relocate, measure, and modify such small particles work.
Raith "Nano-engineering Workbench" dubbed the e_LiNE (for
electron Lithography Nano Engineering) allows researchers
the ability to create, see, find, characterize, test and
modify their nano-structures, in-situ, all on the same

Small technologies are rapidly maturing from lab to
marketplace. The Nanotech Ventures 2005 Early Stage Company
Review provides an ideal forum for "seed" to "early-stage"
companies to showcase their technologies, market advantages,
and to search for funding. Companies are given 15 minutes to
present and will have on-site feedback from Nanotech
Ventures Vetting Team. This years team includes
representatives from such firms as: IBM, Intel Capital,
Mohr, Davidow Ventures, Burns Doane, DuPont Ventures,
ChevronTexaco Technology Ventures, Motorola Investments,
Echelon Ventures, Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr,
Harris and Harris Group, Greenberg Traurig, 3i, UBS and
Draper Fisher Jurvetson.
