What is the Importance of Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology is significant on account of of its pre- eminence upon the comprehension, use, and control of matter at magnitudes of a minute scale, akin to approaching atomic levels, with which to manufacture new substances, instruments, and frameworks. Also known as 'Molecular Manufacturing', it is an emergent diversity of technologies in which...

Importance of Nanotechnology

The most efficient machine is the one that requires the least amount of parts to function properly. The more fundamental the design, the less likely there will be problems. A machine designed from the ground up from atoms would be the highest example of such efficiency. It is for this reason that chemical engineering will become one of the most...

The Nanotechnology Age

COAL AND DIAMONDS, sand and computer chips, cancer and healthy tissue: throughout history, variations in the arrangement of atoms have distinguished the cheap from the cherished, the diseased from the healthy. Arranged one way, atoms make up soil, air, and water; arranged another, they make up ripe strawberries. Arranged one way, they make up...
