Abstract : The subject of nanoscience and/or nanotechnology is of considerable interest as a rapidly expanding frontier of research. This report documents information gathered at 44 laboratories in Europe by the author over a six month period. Research activities in physics, electronics, materials, chemistry, and biotechnology are included. Fundamental advances in fabrication, characterization, and utilization of nanostructures are presented. Areas of greatest interest include nanostructures for electronic and optical materials and devices, sensors, and other applications envisioned. Research programs covered include lithography, materials, self-assembly, local probes, transport properties, quantum dots and wires, surface film behavior, some magnetic and optical behavior, including nonlinear spectroscopy, high frequency device behavior, and mechanical measurements at nanodimensions. A short description of the environment at each laboratory visited is included.
