Nanotech journal editor favors nano electronics, biotech

from the vague-generalities dept.
United Press International has a short interview with H.S. Nalwa ("Nalwa sees nanotechnology expanding", by K. Hearn, 16 June 2001), the editor of the Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and a former staff scientist at the Hitachi Research Laboratory in Japan. Nalwa favors nanoelectronics and nanobiotechnology as the fields that will most likely produce short term results. When asked if the public is sufficiently informed about nanoscience, Nalwa said: "Only educated people and professionals are aware of nanotechnology because it is not defined in a layman manner. We need to define nanotechnology for the public ranging from non-scientists to experts."
