    BEIJING, June 10 (Xinhuanet) -- China has cumulatively invested a total of 830 million yuan (about 100 million US dollars) into the development of its nanometer science and technology, according to an ongoing conference on nanoscience held here in Beijing.

    To date, China has launched more than 100 projects on nanometermaterials and micro electromechanical systems which will help liftits capabilities in producing nanometer materials used for information, medical use, environmental energy and other purposes, reported Friday's People's Daily.

    More than 10 projects are already in the process of industrialization, in which nanometer materials will be used to produce lithium and solar energy batteries, textiles and environment-friendly paintings.

    As one of the first nations to carry out nanometer research, China currently has more than 3,000 researchers who are engaged inrelated programs and have had series of innovative achievements, said Bai Chunli, director of the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology and vice-presidnet of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, at the China International Conference on Nanoscience and Technology.
