Ed. note: every Friday (more or less) Nanotechnology Law Report’s David Fischer will look back at the week’s news and analysis of nano related issues. If you have something you’d like to bring to our attention, email him.
- John Monica comments on David Berube’s article “Regulating Nanoscience: A Proposal and Response to Clarence J. Davies," in Nanotechnology Law & Business.
- Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies chief scientist Andrew Maynard testifies before a government committee on nanotechnology today and calls for, among other things "a robust, top-down research plan that can be implemented by the U.S. government and used for collaborations with industry and with researchers in other countries."
- Advanced Nanotechnology reports on better optical films for solar cells and optical chips.
- Nanodot congratulates Fraser Stoddart who has been knighted for “services to chemistry and molecular nanotechnology" (as does Nanotech Buzz).
- Nanotech Buzz on a nano-enabled battery that powers a car at speeds of 100+ mph.
