Integrity - use of values or principles to guide action in the situation at hand.

Below are links and discussion related to the values of freedom, hope, trust, privacy, responsibility, safety, and well-being, within business and government situations arising in the areas of security, privacy, technology, corporate governance, sustainability, and CSR.

The next big little thing, 20.2.05

Jerusalem Post
Ben-Gurion University's new Laboratory for Nanoscale Systems will enable scientists to form sophisticated chips with structures dedicated to the interface of extremely small elements like single atoms and molecules. Such a newly-created 'smart surface' will help miniaturize matter wave quantum technology (MWQT), which uses single ultra-cold atoms and ions to form devices such as ultra-precise clocks, navigation systems, sensors for underground mineral deposits, communications systems (quantum cryptography) and even ultra-fast computers (quantum computing).

The 'smart surface' concept will be used to develop other devices such as bio-sensor chips and chip interfaces with organic material. To build the 'smart surface,' the facility will incorporate different technologies such as photonics (surface light guides and optics), micro-electro-mechanical moving parts and micro and molecular electronics. The smart-surface concept approaches nanotechnology in two ways, with the final goal of integration and synergism. BGU scientists will continue to focus on bottom-up fabrication, also commonly referred to as 'self-assembly,' dealing with structures between 0.1 to 100 nanometers (a nanometer is one billionth of a meter).

A "top-down" approach will specialize in the creation of the above-mentioned "smart surfaces," with structure scales on the order of 100nm to 10,000nm. Thus advanced top-down fabrication will be utilized to create an interface between self-assembled structures (from one to 1,010 atoms) and the outside world through a dynamic surface (or "motherboard") that would trap, manipulate and measure these structures. This can be considered a sort of dynamic packaging aimed at the enhanced functionality of elementary particles such as atoms or self-assembled materials.

"We shall need compromises in the days ahead, to be sure. But these will be, or should be, compromises of issues, not principles. We can compromise our political positions, but not ourselves. We can resolve the clash of interests without conceding our ideals. And even the necessity for the right kind of compromise does not eliminate the need for those idealists and reformers who keep our compromises moving ahead, who prevent all political situations from meeting the description supplied by Shaw: "smirched with compromise, rotted with opportunism, mildewed by expedience, stretched out of shape with wirepulling and putrefied with permeation.
Compromise need not mean cowardice. .."

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, "Profiles in Courage"
