In 2018, the U.S. Department of Energy established LaserNetUS, a network of facilities operating ultrapowerful lasers. Organized and funded through DOE’s Office of Fusion Energy Sciences (FES), the new network was created to provide vastly improved access to unique lasers for researchers, and to help restore the U.S.’s once-dominant position in high-intensity laser research. Now, new DOE funding totaling $18 million, including $1 million for user support, will be distributed among 10 partner institutions and will continue and expand LaserNetUS operations for three years.

Before diving into nanotech stocks to watch it’s important to consider what “nano” is and what it promises. Nano means billionth. Micro, which we are more familiar with, means millionth. Thus, nanotech exists on a scale 1,000 times smaller than the scale on which microtechnology does. Because of this, companies that compete in nanotechnology represent revolutionary advancements.
