Scientometric approach to nanotechnology


  • Terekhov, Alexander

    (CEMI RAS, Moscow)


The article provides a brief bibliometric analysis of the development of nanotechnology with an estimate of the positions of Russia, including in areas such as carbon nanostructures, and nanophotonics. A number of characteristics of research personnel that are relevant for assessing the prospects of nanotechnology development in our country are calculated. Initial statistics for this analysis were extracted from the database SCI-Expanded (ISI Web of Knowledge). Some data from the domestic databases: of Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR) and Rospatent were also used
