Nanomaterials Technology: Convergence between Nanotechnology and Materials Science and Engineering

This chapter will describe the implications for security forces of the convergence between nanotechnology and materials science and engineering. It will aim to investigate what can be expected in the medium term, until 2025, by examining U.S. and Russian efforts in nanomaterials, with a focus on security forces applications. It will also suggest a few scenarios in which nanomaterials are likely to be misused against individuals or societies, states, and their security apparatuses. What are the challenges? What should we expect in this field in the medium term, that is,
by 2025?
