Summary

There are active nanotechnology programs with a substantial investment of personnel at many federal laboratories. These mission-driven labs explore specific technologies, seeking solutions to urgent and long-standing problems in their road maps. Invariably the developments have commercial possibilities, and each lab has a commercialization office and well-established procedures to transfer technology to industry. In addition to the nation's universities, the federal labs are anticipated to be a key source for intellectual property in nanotechnology.
