Making the most of metal oxides on the nanoscale
On first blush, two scientists striving to exploit unique electronic and magnetic properties of metal oxides that occur in the nanoscale may seem to be working toward the same end. They're using the same equipment and some of the same methods, but their research at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and its potential applications are quite different.

Nanotechnology moves into the spotlight
It's science on the smallest of levels. It's the truth in the statement that good things come in small packages. Nanotechnology is an area of research and development that centers on phenomena that occur at dimensions so tiny that they're hard to imagine—in the range of one billionth of a meter. Yet the potential impacts are tremendous.
