Nanosensors and nanoprobes in sci-tech publications : volumetry since 2000

This chart was built by searching Scitation for publications mentionning the prefixes “nanosens” or “nanoprob” in their title or abstract. It is interesting to see that the rythm of development of nanosensing / nanoprobing  techniques varies a lot from year to year, with for example relatively high “bursts” of publications in 2004 and 2007.  Maybe we could sum it up like so : “Innovation is not a steady process. Creativity comes in bursts.”  Nevertheless, when examining other topics and nanotech trends, the evolution is often much more steady. Any comments on that ?
