Nanotechnology encompasses enabling technologies that relate to devices and mechanisms operating at the molecular scale (on the order of one billionth of a meter). Innovations in the areas of life sciences and medicine, electronics, and materials based on nanotechnology seek to offer better medicines, faster computers, and stronger materials, to name just a few. New products that derive from nanotechnology include:
- molecular electronic and sensors
- artificial nanostructures
- carbon structural materials, including nanotubes
Our attorneys and technology specialists have substantial experience in identifying and protecting innovations in this multi-disciplinary field.
