This bibliometric report examines scientific activity in nanoscience using scientific papers, as well as intellectual property in nanotechnology using patents granted by the USPTO. The central aim of the scientometric and technometric analyses is to identify areas in which high-output, high-intensity, and high-impact research is being conducted. For this purpose, emphasis is placed on ranking research at the country, company and university levels. In addition, the report examines how nanoscale research and technology are evolving over time and features detailed analyses of eight non-mutually exclusive domains of nanoscale R&D.

Nanoscience and nanotechnology are hotbeds of R&D wherein emergent properties of matter, which are present only at extremely small feature scales, are discovered and exploited. R&D Reports uses bibliometric indicators calculated on peer-reviewed papers in the Scopus database and granted patents in the USPTO database to produce multicriteria rankings and collaboration networks of countries, universities and companies. These show, at a glance, the leaders’ scientific and technological positions in eight key domains of nanoscience and nanotechnology:

- General Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
- Materials
- Electronics and Computing
- Optics and Photonics
- Nanoelectromechanical Systems (NEMS)
- Medecine and biology
- Energy
- Environment
- Metrology

Key findings include:

- The scientific output in nanoscience increased at a compound annual growth rate of nearly 16% during the last decade.
- The scientific output in Republic of Korea and China exhibit spectacular growth.
- The number of patents granted has also grown rapidly (10%).
- Nanomaterials, nanophotonics, nanoelectronics and nanoscience in medicine & biology represent the largest concentration of R&D.
- Growth is particularly fast in emerging domains, namely NEMS, energy and environment.

The Nanotechnology World R&D Report 2008 will help analysts and decision-makers to:

- Identify industry leaders in eight domains of nanoscience and nanotechnology
- Identify innovators and competitors, and estimate industry R&D capacity
- Find commercialization and scaling-up partners
- Gather competitive intelligence on S&T activities
- Find collaboration partners
- Identify takeover targets
- Identify where the best researchers are
- Identify and prioritize investment opportunities
- Identify the best locations to expand R&D facilities
- Compare an IP position with that of a competitor
- Anticipate threats to existing nanotechnology activities
- Gain insight into national dynamics and trends in emerging nanotechnologies
