A nano timeline

2001 — Begin augmented R&D in grand challenges, infrastructure, education

and nanotechnology, societal impact and regular program reviews.

2002 — Establish 10 new centers and networks with a full range of nanoscale

measurement and fabrication facilities.

2003 — Develop new reference materials for semiconductor nanostructures, lab-on-a-chip

technologies, nanomagnetics, and quality assurance analysis for nanosystems.

2004 — Develop standardized, reproducible, microfabricated approaches to nanocharacterization,

nanomanipulation and nanodevices.
