EU nanotechnology research - Tools for tomorrow

Funded under: FP6-NMP

Abstract

Right at the heart of nanotechnology are the instruments that allow us to study and handle matter at the nano scale. These instruments make progress in research and the industrial use of nanotechnology possible. It was a new piece of equipment - the Scanning Tunneling Microscope for which Heinrich Rohrer and Gerd Binnig won the 1986 Nobel prize - that opened the door to the nano age, and novel instrumentation continues to push its development.
