A world without nano? Soon hard to imagine
Date:5/27/2011

Smart windows which, thanks to a nanocoating, adjust their level of transparency to suit the sun's brightness, so helping to save energy; novel diagnostic methods and tailor-made nano-medicines to treat HIV and arteriosclerosis;. nanofibers which, on the one hand, can be used to make very efficient dust filters and on the other, thanks to integrated pheromones, protect vineyards from insect attack; new nanostructured materials for making more efficient batteries;. innovative media for storing unimaginably large quantities of computer data these are just a few of the possible solutions that nanoresearchers are currently developing and which were the topic of animated discussion at the Swiss NanoConvention.

"We need to have significantly more of this kind of events, which bring together the top political and economic personalities, investors and financial experts and representatives of the most outstanding research institutes," commented the head of IBM research, John Kelly. A few days earlier he had inaugurated the new nanoresearch center in Rueschlikon, a joint-venture by IBM and the ETH Zurich in which Empa also has an interest. Asked why IBM had chosen Switzerland as the location for its new nanocenter, he replied "Because this is where the best people are." As far as IBM's head of research is concerned, it is clear that a future without nanotechnology in many technical areas is quite unimaginable. "The future of electronic data processing lies in nanotechnology, in combination with a radical new system architecture."

Progress is taking place on the nanometer scale

"Nano" is making waves in the field of medicine too. According to Patrik Hunziker of the University Hospital Basel, interest is being focused on two particular properties of nanomaterials and systems their ability to target and home-in on sick organs, tissues or cells without simultaneously triggering an immune response. "This means that the effectiveness of th
