The Dutch financial newspaper Het Financieele Dagblad published a special today concerning smart materials. In this print and online edition Professor Dave Blank, chair of NanoNextNL, underlines the infinite applications of nanotechnology. In an interview he explains that many technological developments are based on miniaturisation, like in nanotechnology. This enables us to change and improve the properties of materials, as expressed by visionary Richard Feynman who suggested back in 1959 the idea of using atoms as building blocks for structures.
