Nanotech Briefs magazine has
announced the winners of its third annual Nano 50 awards competition,
which recognizes the top 50 technologies, innovators, and products that
have significantly impacted, or will impact, the development of
nanotechnology. The 50 winners are the most innovative people, designs, and
products that will move nanotechnology to key mainstream markets.
Nano 50 nominees were judged by a panel of independent nanotechnology
experts in three categories: Technology, Product, and Innovator. Those
nominations receiving the 50 highest scores were named Nano 50 winners.
This year's winners include:
Stephen Y. Chou of Princeton University and founder of Nanonex and
Xerox Research Centre of Canada for their Printed Electronics technology
Starpharma Holdings Limited for their VivaGel Microbiocide
A complete list of this year's Nano 50 is available at:
Nanotech Briefs will present the awards at a special reception and
dinner during the National Nano Engineering Conference, November 14-15, at
the Boston Marriott Copley Place. For more information on the conference,
