From the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) comes Nanotechnology 101, a helpful introduction to nanotechnology and its many uses. This website may be of interest to science instructors as well as other members of the general public looking for an accessible, yet detailed, overview of thisrapidly growing field. In the What It Is And How It Works section, visitors will find a twelve-page pamphlet that illustrates the many uses of nanotechnology, from water filtration to medicine. Meanwhile, the Nanotechnology Timeline traces historical uses of nanotechnology all the way back to the 4th Century (when early nanotechnology was employed to create the dichroic glass in the Roman Lycurgus Cup). To learn about more ontemporary uses of nanotechnology, visitors can check out the NNI Accomplishments Archive that highlights reports from agencies participating in NNI, including the National Institute of Health and the Department of Energy. As the site notes, these reports date from 2009 and earlier; readers will need to browse external sites for more recent materials. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.
