Abstract

This report catalogs the efforts of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in nanotechnology during FY 2001. The purpose of this report is to provide a snapshot of current efforts in nanotechnology at NIST and in doing so allow one to view the role of NIST research in context of the total federal research nanotechnology effort and to understand NIST activities in the context of expected demands and strategic thrusts. The reason for NIST's borad interest in nanotechnology and participation in the NNI can be readily understood in terms of NIST's long standing presence in the measurements and standards arena and in NIST's role in promoting high-risk technology research in industry.
