Abstract

Nanotechnology is an emerging science that studies how to control matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Generally nanotechnology deals with structures of the size of 100 nanometers or smaller in at least one dimension, and involves developing materials or devices within that size. Nanotechnology ranges from extensions of conventional device physics to completely new approaches based upon molecular self-assembly, from developing new materials with dimensions on the nanoscale to investigating whether we can directly control matter on the atomic
