  • 1. China – The nanotech leader By Arun Kottolli
  • 2. Emerging Technology
    • Prior to 2000, there was no mention of nanotech in China
    • By Jan 2005 China has dozens of Nanotech research centers – in Beijing, Shenyang, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Hong Kong
    • Government has funded Nanotech research through National 863 Hi-Tech R&D Plan
    • People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is driving the military research in nanotech
    • China Plans to be a global leader in nanotech by 2010
  • 3. Major Nanotech Complexes
    • In July 2001 Shanghai Nanotech Promotion Center (SNPC) was established to focus on nanotech research
    • Shanghai has started work on a $217 million Stone Nanotechnology Park
    • Nanotech park will unite state-level research centers, several laboratories focusing on nano materials, and eleven additional companies that are commercializing R&D into products
  • 4. Shanghai Takes a lead
    • In 2001, Shanghai government invested 30 million Yuan in nanotech – nano-biology, nano-medicine and nano-electronics; this laid solid foundation for nano-sector
    • Shanghai's government will accelerate the application of nanotech in different industries, especially automotive products
    • Shanghai S&T Commission stated that it would also set up a nanotech incubator program
  • 5. Universities Join in
    • East China Science and Technology (S&T) University has setup a 76,000 square meters facility for nanotech firms
    • Currently six nanotech R&D centers – built in such leading Shanghai universities
      • Jiaotong University,
      • Fudan University,
      • East China University,
      • East China Normal University,
      • Shanghai University
      • East China S&T University –
    • Universities are exchanging their latest nanotech results
  • 6. Universities are getting Results
    • The Center for Nanotechnologies at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in Beijing opened in 2000
    • Beijing's Tsinghua University announced a new approach to the production of carbon nano-tubes at a rate of 15 kilograms per hour, 60 times faster than the speed at which they had originally been produced
    • Current research is aimed at nano-materials, nano-electronic components and nano-medical technologies
  • 7. Joint Ventures with US firms
    • The CAS Institute of Chemistry and Veeco of USA has an alliance which provides access to Veeco-made nanotech instruments to Chinese researchers including atomic force and scanning-tunneling microscopes
    • "China will gain the leadership position in nanotech," remarked Veeco President Don Kania
    • CTI Molecular Imaging to provide Zhejiang University with a $1 million microPET scanner
    • Zhejiang University in exchange will allow CTI access to its research facilities and activity that will use the microPET scanner to compare various forms of cancer treatments
  • 8. National Standards for Nanotech
    • China will have its first national standards for nano material in effect from April 1
    • This is the first national standards for nano material in the world
    • Standards is expected to lay a good foundation for market access, technical standards, regulating the market, proper application of tech-intensive nano materials
  • 9. China will gain leadership position
    • China enjoys the advantage in research of nanometer materials
    • China had more than 300 enterprises in the nanotech sector
    • More than 7,000 scientists engaged in nanotech R&D
    • The Central government has budgeted two billion Yuan for nanotech projects between 2003 and 2007
  • 10. Conclusion
    • China has developed a focused program in Nano tech aimed at securing a global leadership position in Nano technology
    • In terms of basic nanotech R&D, China has reached the most advanced levels in the world, rivaling even the capacities of the United States.
