In April 2005, when we were conceptualizing the NISE Net and writing the first proposal, we made various stabs at trying to draw a diagram that would represent the NISE Net. Here's one that I did. We never used it but it became known as the Easter Egg diagram. So here it is 7 years later and you can see that things are quite different today from what is in this image.
Where is the research happening? Is the National Nanotechnology Initiative continuing to grow? What are the focus areas? Mike Roco, who leads NSF's nanoscale science and engineering work, shared the following images at the annual Nanoscale Science and Engineering Conference in DC on Dec 5.
