A nano timeline
- By Paula Shaki Trimble
- Aug 28, 2000
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.
