Robert A. Freitas Jr. (born 1952) is a nanotechnology scientist.
Freitas holds a 1974 Bachelor's degree majoring in both
physics and psychology from Harvey Mudd College, and a 1978 Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from Santa Clara University School of Law. He has written more than 150 technical papers, book chapters, or popular articles on a diverse set of scientific, engineering, and legal topics.
Freitas began writing his Nanomedicine book series in 1994. Volume I, published in October 1999 by
Landes Bioscience while Freitas was a Research Fellow at the Institute for Molecular Manufacturing. Volume IIA was published in October 2003 by Landes Bioscience.
In 2004, Freitas and
Ralph Merkle coauthored and published Kinematic Self-Replicating Machines, a comprehensive survey of the field of physical and hypothetical self-replicating machines.
In 2009, Freitas was awarded the
Feynman Prize in Nanotechnology.
