Despite massive media attention and investments, nanotechnology has yet to live up to the hype, and many are still confused as to the best context for examining â??nanoâ? for the purpose of business-minded analyses.  Rather than regarding nano as its own industry, it is best considered an enabling technology that fits into and enhances the value chains of already existing industries.  The nanotechnology value chain — namely, the distinction between nanomaterials, nanointermediates, and nano-enabled products — is a very useful tool for conducting such an analysis.  After a discussion of this value chain, this presentation will review some of Luxâ??s key tools for assessing both a companyâ??s technical value and business execution.  It will then explore key electronics application spaces of nanotechnology — including transparent conductive films, conductive composites, imaging, and in vitro diagnostics — which will serve as case studies for solidifying common themes of what it takes to be successful as a nanotech developer.
