What is Nanotechnology?

Nanotechnology is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale.

In its original sense, 'nanotechnology' refers to the projected ability to construct items from the bottom up, using techniques and tools being developed today to make complete, high performance products.

Why Nanotechnology?

It’s hard to imagine how small nanotechnology is. One nanometer is a billionth of a meter or 10⁻9 of a meter. On a comparative scale, if a marble were a nanometer, then one meter would be the size of the Earth.

What is so special about the Nanoscale is that the materials properties change significantly from those at large scale. This is the size scale where so-called quantum effects rule the behavior and properties of particles.

A fascinating and powerful result of the quantum effects of the nanoscale is the concept of “tunability” of properties. At this level scientist can literally fine-tune a material property of interest.

Using nanotechnology, materials can effectively be made to be stronger, lighter, more durable, more reactive, more sieve-like, or better electrical conductors, among many other traits.

Nanotechnology is helping to considerably improve, even revolutionize, many technology and industry sectors like information technology, energy, environmental science, medicine, homeland security, food safety, and transportation, among many others.
