This article provides a brief snapshot of some of the agricultural, biological, electronics, medical, and manufacturing applications currently under active research and development at the University of Illinois Center for Nanoscale Silence and Technology (CNST) collaboratory. The trend has been to prefix the word nano to any application (such as nanoagriculture, nanoelectronics, nanomedicine, etc.) that leverages features at the nanoscale to design and develop materials, processes, sensors, devices, and systems.
