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: http://blog.research2zero.com/tiny 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!
