Nanotechnology applications

Nanotechnology has huge range of applications like Electronics, Medicine, Chemistry, Biology, Army and many more.

Nanotechnology can improve the capabilities of electronic components like display, memory chips, tranzistors, and many more. Nanotechnology research is using in practical applications very fast, but lots of applications are still waiting for use.

Research in nanotechnology is not still finished and we want to write about new applications all world.

What is nanotechnology?

About Nanotechnology we speak when we want to work with materials and processes at the nanoscale, typically, but not exclusively, below 100 nanometres in one or more dimensions where the onset of size-dependent phenomena usually enables novel applications.

Charles Vest, the president of MIT:

"We are just beginning to understand how to use nanotechnology to build devices and machines that imitate the elegance and economy of nature. The gathering nanotechnology revolution will eventually make possible a huge leap in computing power, vastly stronger yet much lighter materials, advances in medical technologies, as well as devices and processes with much lower energy and environmental costs."

Definition of Nanotechnology by NNI

The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), calls an area of research, development, and engineering "nanotechnology" only if it involves all of the following:

      Research and technology development at the atomic, molecular, or macromolecular levels, in the lenght scale of approximately 1 to 100 nm range.
      Creating and using structures, devices, and systems that have novel properties and functions because of their small and / or intermediate size
      Ability to control or manipulate matter on the atomic scale

Nanotechnology is used in a large number of industries.

Building materials with new properties with long endurance. Materials for testing probes used in non destructive testing. Lots of applications we can find in electrotechnic industries, communications and computers and of course in military and aerospace but in chemicals, medical and energy.
