Chee, Journal of Vacuum Science and Technology B 18 (2000) 888. 1 The Case for the European Research Area At the Lisbon summit in March 2000 Mr Phillippe Busquin, the European Commissioner for Research, announced that his aim was to create a European research area that would become the most competitive knowledge-based economy in the world by 2010. Even as he made this statement, he was aware that this was a very ambitious target. Using current patent data in the advanced technology sector as an indicator, Europe falls behind both the US and Japan, holding only 9% of patents at the US office in comparison to 57% and 22% for the US and Japan, respectively.

7 (a) Device architecture of a vertical CNT transistor. One device unit consists of a CNT, at the intersection of the top and bottom electrodes. (b, c) Top view of an m  m fabricated device array and its schematic diagram. CNTs are located at the intersection of a drain and a gate electrode Recently, it has been discovered that the electrical properties of CNTs can be modified by chemical doping using various molecules. Examples of functional modification are functionalizing CNTs by doping with potassium and annealing in oxygen.

The ability of scientists to visualise and control the behaviour of materials and at the nanoscale is providing them with the tools to develop novel products. At the nanoscale, materials contain novel and unexpected properties providing a real opportunity to create ‘smart’ materials that result in products with completely new functions. These products should be less resource- and energy-intensive to produce. Through technology at the nanoscale, the vision is that manufacturing will become steadily cleaner and greener, and Nanotechnology in Europe 47 products will be cheaper and have more functionality.
