Much of the publicity surrounding nanotechnology covers leading-edge applications with the potential to create tremendous disruptive changes in key industries such as semiconductors. Whilst the intensive support of these projects is critical, nearer-term opportunities must be grasped across a range of technology platforms and markets in order to gain experience in the production of new nano materials and systems in more immediate opportunities. These product enhancements - more significant than evolution, less dramatic than disruption - can generate significant volumes and opportunities. Examples of "Enhanced" products and systems developed by NanoDynamics Inc. in the processing of metals and non-metals will be reviewed and conclusions drawn.
