The Nanotechnology Trend is Intact

by Kris_Tuttle on January 12, 2012

We’ve had a great time in nan­otech­nol­ogy dur­ing the past year. We’ve dug into laser-based light­ing, new water­proof coat­ings for your iPhone, commercial-scale quan­tum com­put­ers, opti­cal net­work­ing, bat­ter­ies, algae-based fuels, light­ing, and improved med­ical diag­nos­tics to name some.

Although many of the indi­vid­ual oppor­tu­ni­ties are pow­er­ful enough by them­selves, the fact that nan­otech­nol­ogy can be lever­aged as a plat­form for invest­ing is even more impor­tant. Com­mer­cial suc­cesses are increas­ing and we are see­ing attrac­tive real­ized insti­tu­tional invest­ment returns from diverse applications.

Plat­form tech­nolo­gies (inter­net, XaaS, mobile) are pow­er­ful and nan­otech­nol­ogy is too. We’ve been cov­er­ing Har­ris & Har­ris for some time and con­tinue to uncover addi­tional poten­tial in their very-undervalued shares with every new report. Like many plat­form tech­nolo­gies nan­otech­nol­ogy suf­fered through a hype phase years ago but we are now on the “slope of enlightenment.”

For easy access to our past and ongo­ing research on nan­otech­nol­ogy we cre­ated a spe­cial page: so please visit anytime.

In the course of our work on quan­tum com­put­ers we stum­bled on to some very early research at MIT that sug­gests that quan­tum effects can be used to trans­port energy with zero loss. Even over super short dis­tances this can be a big deal.

Please let us know if you have ques­tions or other nan­otech­nol­ogy areas and/or com­pa­nies we should be look­ing at. Just leave a com­ment below. The fun never stops!
