Advances in Nanosciences Tied to the Identification of their Application Markets

With several industries proving somewhat reluctant to be early adopters of new technologies, nanoscience developers will face challenges in proving their technology's capabilities in real-world conditions. This cautious wait-and-watch approach of end users has rather constrained nanosensor technologies from achieving their potential for technical innovation and progress, causing nanosensor technologies to remain at an emerging stage. This has belied its promise of widespread commercialization and potential to open up new sensor markets in diverse applications such as chemical sensors, biosensors, READ MORE >
