    Little by little, nanotechnology has emerged amid enormous aspirations for new
    materials and fantastic promises of manipulating our world “atom by atom.” While
    these grand visions continue to capture the imaginations of various audiences—and
    continue to be contested, as well—nanotechnology has developed into more than that.
    During the last two decades, many research programs and industrial R&D expenditures
    have resulted in actual products and tangible innovations. Nanotechnology, it seems, is
    expanding. But what does it mean to say that nanotechnology is expanding?
