Nanotechnology involves manipulating individual atoms and molecules to alter a material's makeup at the most basic levels. This new report looks at the progress of U.S. nanotechnology research toward meeting the objectives originally set by the National Nanotechnology Initiative. The report also considers the adequacy of the initiative's research agenda.
These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on June 10, 2002 and can be found, in its entirety, on the National Academy Press Web
