Nanotechnology for NEMA member product industries closer than you might think
TC 113 U.S.
Technical Advisory Group Chair Dr. Brent Segal, Lockheed Martin Corp., tells me that
there are 2 camps when it comes to nanotechnology advancement; those that think
nano is 10 years away, and those that have already been producing nano-enabled
products for 10 years. A new IEC Technical Specification for large scale
manufacturing of nanoelectronics, to be developed jointly between IEC
TC 113 and IEEE and slated for completion in the fall of 2010, will help advance
nano-based value added products by defining standardized processes for incorporating
nanomaterials into products with new properties and performance enabled by
those nanomaterials. It's time for NEMA members in the former camp to be forward
thinking and jump on board.
