Nanotechnology is the science involved in the design, production and use of structures and objects, using tiny particles such as nanomaterials.
Nanotechnology is perhaps one of the most important growth areas of the 21st century.
Nanoscience is the manipulation of matter at the atomic scale of 1 to 100 nanometers.
Nanotechnology is multidisciplinary, covering atomic, molecular and solid state physics, whilst including much of chemistry. Nanostructures exhibit some surprising properties that can help fight disease, reduce pollution, improve the hope for humanity and deliver clean energy to improve the quality of life for people everywhere.
At the nanoscale, the physical and chemical properties behave very differently than expected at eye level.
