Small Times carries an overview of Indian nanotechnologies.

The report only glances the tip of a particularly large iceberg. This year India will produce five times as many English speaking engineering graduates as the Unites States, and while costs may be substantially lower, scalability is a major attraction, as the IT industry found in the run up to Y2k.
Talking of which, Cientifica currently has four open vacancies in the fast growing Mumbai office, so if you want to work with us, track down Jyothi Chowti at YashNanotech and tell her why.
