Description
 
Statement of Timothy M. Persons, Chief Scientist, GAO. Nanotechnology has been defined as the control or restructuring of matter at the atomic and molecular levels in the size range of about 1100 nanometers (nm); 100 nm is about 1/1000th the width of a hair. The U.S. Nat. Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), begun in 2001 and focusing primarily on R&D, represents a cumulative investment of almost $20 billion, including the request for FY 2014. As research continues and other nations increasingly invest in R&D,nanotechnology is moving from the laboratory to commercial markets, mass manufacturing, and the global marketplace -- and the potential environmental, health, and safety (EHS) effects of nanomanufacturing remain largely unknown. This statement addresses challenges to U.S. competitiveness in nanomanufacturing and related issues. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
