Nanotech progress will benefit from tools that permit direct observation of nanometer-scale structural changes in nanosystems in the timescales over which these changes occur. Dynamic Transmission Electron Microscope (DTEM) combines nanometer scale spatial resolution with 15 nanosecond temporal resolution…
Foresight Event – Vision Weekend
The recent formation of an international alliance to establish the methods used to test the safety of nanotech materials is not only encouraging for the development of nanotechnology in the near-term and intermediate-term, but it may establish a precedent for international cooperation as the even more complex problems related to the development of advanced nanotechnology emerge during the coming decades…
In another important step toward nanotech methods of drug delivery for cancer therapy, researchers have developed a nanoparticle that is stable enough inside an animal to deliver molecules to image a tumor in multiple ways and to deliver drugs to kill the tumor…
A new material called chemically modified graphene (CMG) may lead to ultracapacitors that can store about twice as much electrical charge as is possible with current commercially available materials, thus offering a nanotech energy storage solution that could help make solar and wind power practical alternative energy sources…
On the Editor's Page at Medical DeviceLinkCom, Shana Leonard writes about the crucial need for design and modeling techniques to guide nanosystems development toward fabrication, and cites the Technology Roadmap for Productive Nanosystems…

Do you believe that nanotechnology will give society the ability to tackle the hard challenges facing humanity? What's your priority for nanotechnology: cancer treatments and longevity therapies, sustainable energy, clean water, a restored environment, space development, or "zero waste" manufacturing? Or perhaps there are potential nanotech scenarios you would like to prevent.
If you would like to help influence the direction of this powerful technology, please consider becoming a member of Foresight Nanotech Institute. With your support, Foresight will continue to educate the general public on beneficial nanotechnology and what it will mean to our society.
The Singularity Summit
Hosted by the Singularity Institute, the Singularity Summit is the premier dialog on the Singularity.
The Singularity Summit gathers the smartest people around to explore the biggest ideas of our time. Learn where humanity is headed, meet the people leading the way, and leave inspired to create a better world.
