Commercialization: A Primer for Lawyers & Investors

John Miller, K. J. Cho, and Michael McGehee, "A Realistic Assessment of the Commercialization of Nanotechnology: A Primer for Lawyers and Investors," NANOTECHNOLOGY LAW AND BUSINESS JOURNAL, Vol. 1, Number 1, 2004, n. pag. Electronic version.


Recently, when asked by an Executive Department officer to recommend a readable article on nanotechnology that skips the hype, I recommended the article by Miller et al. My rationale: well-written and comprehensive analysis of the building blocks of nanotechnology and the market applications of nanotechnology from sensing to energy. The authors even contextualize the Drexler version of molecular manufacturing without resorting to insults.

This is a must read for people who want to learn about nanotechnology and may not have time to read longer works like Soft Machines (Oxford UP, 2004) by Richard Jones from Sheffield. The article, like the book, is hyper-free.
