Tiny machines = giant profits -- the first-ever investor's guide to the burgeoning field of nanotechnology Combined government and private investments in nanotechnology topped $1 billion in 2000, and that figure is expected to continue to grow exponentially in the years ahead. In the first investment guide to the rapidly emerging nanotech industry, Glenn Fishbine separates fact from fiction for professionals looking at nanotechnology as potential business or financial ventures. He takes an objective, no-nonsense look at current applications in the field and what's likely to develop in the near future in order to help professionals and investors distinguish between solid opportunities, "Hail Mary's," and sheer science fiction. Fishbine provides an overview of the current state of research and identifies the key nanotech applications areas. He also explores the nanotech initiatives currently underway and assesses their long-term potential from an investor's perspective.
