(June 23, 2011) Due to its ability to enable materials, devices and systems with new properties and functions, nanotechnology is viewed as «the next industrial revolution». Aymeric Sallin explains how investors find the most promising nanotech start-ups and transform the companies into profitable businesses. http://www.empa.ch/
Investing in nanotechnology involves finding companies that specialize in this practice and researching what the companies are about. Discover more about investing in nanotechnology and historical trends of investing in other types of technology, with insight from a futures and options floor trader in this free video on investing.

Brazila Asset Management, An asset management group hosts Polybrite of Chicago, a worldwide supplier and provider of light emitting diode (LED) products. Professor Nafey has been nominated for a Nobel Prize in Science. In this video Professor Nafey talks about how nanotechnology plays a part in the future of lighting and energy conservation.
Behold The Future...Scientists invent Nanotechnology that Connects your Brain to your Computer. A new science fiction technology has just been invented that will allow you to wirelessly interface with your computer straight from your brain. “In the Culture novels by Iain M. Banks, futuristic post-humans install devices on their brains called a “neural lace.” A mesh that grows with your brain, it’s essentially a wireless brain-computer interface. But it’s also a way to program your neurons to release certain chemicals with a thought. And now, there’s a neural lace prototype in real life.” -gizmodo Recently published in the Nature Nanotechnology was a group of engineers and chemists that got together to work on a new ultra-fine mesh nanotechnology that can merge into your brain. This...
RMIT Research is developing an integrated capability in nanotechnology. This comprises the design and modelling of nanomaterials and nanostructures, the synthesis of functional materials, and the fabrication and characterisation of novel nano-scale devices. This integrated capability in nanotechnology focuses on discovery-type fundamental research and also the development of application products in specific areas such as security and air/water purification.

Haydale Graphene Industries (LON:HAYD) CEO, Ray Gibbs, tells Proactiveinvestors about how they are overcoming the technical challenges of integrating the nanotechnology of graphene with other materials to produce exciting new products. He also talks about the how they are going to be investing in new plant and technology at their South Wales base
easyJet, the UK's largest airline, is the first commercial airline to trial a revolutionary nanotechnology coating on its aircraft aimed at reducing drag and increasing fuel efficiency. The high tech coating, already used on US military aircraft, is a polymer that cross links and bonds to the paint surface. The coating reduces the build up of debris on the aircraft's structure, leading edge and other surfaces, thus reducing drag on the surface of the aircraft. The manufacturers of the coating estimate that it could reduce easyJet's fuel consumption by 1-2%. The airline has coated eight aircraft, adding an estimated weight of only 4oz per aircraft, and will compare their fuel consumption with the rest of the fleet during a 12 month trial period. It is estimated that the implementation...
On Wednesday, June 8, 2011, Senator Wyden spoke on the floor of the US Senate in support of the Economic Development Revitalization Act of 2011 (S. 782), specifically citing the success and future of nanotechnology, one of the leading growth industries with jobs in the US.
Jurvetson describes his position and interest in the nanotechnology industry. In his opinion, it is still too early for the average venture firm to invest in the industry--in part, because they invest in companies that are much farther along o
