Silicon technology: from micro to nano and why federal investment matters
Author(s): Kathleen Kingscott

Paper Abstract

Let me begin by expressing my thanks for the privilege and opportunity to address you today. I would like to provide you with an industry-based perspective of nanotechnology in order to help you understand why we at IBM view nanotechnology to be so important. What is nanotechnology? For some, nanotechnology is narrowly defined as a technology in which structures are assembled in a “bottom up” manner by placing the individual atoms into desired positions.
