The field of nanotechnology has seen enormous growth since 2000 and is expected to reach $1 trillion worldwide by 2015. Through a systematic and automated knowledge mapping methodology, authors Hsinchun Chen and Mihail Roco in this book collect, analyze and report on the state of the art in nanotechnology research, based on the analysis of databases for science and engineering articles (Thompson Citation Index) and patents (US Patent Office in the United States, European Patent Office in Europe and the Japanese Patent Office in Japan). This ground-breaking volume offers a wealth of information for professors, researchers and students in information technology interested in knowledge mapping methodology and its applications in emerging technology fields; professors, researchers and students in nanotechnology-related fields; executives, managers, analysts and researchers in the nanotechnology industry; and policy makers and analysts in federal governments interested in monitoring the global competitive landscape.
