Graphic: Impressionistic collage of nanotechnology research.
Caption: Background image by scanning microscope revealing branched electron flow. Upper right image of nanocrystals fluorescing at various wavelengths. Upper left image is a concept of a molecular based transistor based on carbon nanotubes. Lower right is 3D graphic of a carbon nantube wrapped in a polymer to enable the solubility in water and hence in the cytoplasm of a living cell.
