Sensors Insights By Tom Kevan

Making Measurements on a Molecular Scale
Despite all the hype, commercialization of nanosensors is largely unfulfilled. Many of the potential beneficiaries have held back from adopting the technology and are waiting for proof that the nanodevices can be produced cost-effectively and function as promised under real-world conditions. According to Frost & Sullivan's report "Advances in Nanosensors", this wait-and-see environment is delaying commercialization and the emergence of sensor markets that leverage the technology's promise of "smaller, more sensitive, faster-responding, and less costly sensors." If you look hard enough, however, you can see signs that things are changing. continued
