"The nanotechnology industry will be very disruptive to existing technologies, but it will lead us to faster communications, reduce our energy needs and give us stronger and lighter materials," said Jan Dryselius.

"We haven't even begun to realize the significance of the developments in the world of nano materials," he said, referring to the tiny particles that are measured on a near-atomic scale -- just a few billionths of a meter.
