The nanoelectronics field also recently got a boost from the NanoBusiness Alliance, which is throwing its full support behind proposed government legislation to provide $2.1 billion over three years for nanotechnology R&D. The proposal, H.R. 766, was filed the week of Feb. 10, 2003 by Sherwood Boehlert, chairman of the U.S. House Science Committee. For more, check out www.nanobusiness.org.
