"nDuring the last decade, nanotechnology has gained remarkable attention by international scientific and industrial societies. In this respect, various countries have launched their short and long-term programs to benefit from the huge market ex­pected by utilization and implementation of this technology in their industrial/technological infrastructures. Islamic republic of Iran, also by considering the undeniable impact of this technology on her nation's wealth and economy, initiated her na­tional nanotechnology development plan referred to as "Future Strategy" in 2005. The strategic plan outlines countries ma­jor action plans for ten-year period up to 2015 with the target to be amongst the top 15 countries active in this very impor­tant area.
