Iran’s nanotechnology industry has been making rapid progress, said Saeed Sarkar, the secretary of Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council on Thursday. “Currently, 17 countries import Iran-made nano products,” he said, Mehr News Agency reported. Exports include lab equipment, industrial machinery, and nano materials and have been growing. In the five months of the current Iranian year that started in March exports generated more than $35 million. In 2007, Iran ranked 23rd the world in nanotechnology with the most highly cited papers internationally, and only second to South Korea in Asia. By 2012 Iran was 8th in nanotechnology.
