Summary:

More than 30 years since the advent of colloidal metal and semiconductor nanoparticles still market for such nanomaterials is in its infancy. In this presentation I will discuss my view on some of the general roadblocks that are hindering further penetration of such nanomaterials to market. I also provide an overview on gold nanorod based technologies and the significance of scalable methods of interfacing and integration for realization of some useful products.
