For decades, chemists and molecular biologists have been using better and
better molecular-processing tools to make and manipulate precise, molecular
structures. These tools are of obvious use. Physicists, as we will see, have
This problem looks tough. Cooperative Controls Molecular manufacturing will
lead to more powerful technologies, but our current, crude technology already
has world-smashing potential. We have lived with that potential for decades now.
In the coming decades, preventing major abuse of nanotechnol- ogy will take the
form of regulation, arms control, and antiterrorist activities. In the field of arms
control, nanotechnology should present strong motivation for international ...
