Nanotechnology is a branch of knowledge which is acquired by doing research throughout all domains, such as physics, chemistry, biology, materials science and engineering. Nanotechnology depicts the information about tiny things carried out at the nanoscale, which is nearly 1 to 100 nanometers. Father of nanotechnology, Physicist Richard Feynman introduced the term nanotechnology at first in 1959.
Scientists and engineers have been thinking about atoms or small groups of atoms for years. Eventually, they have been trying also to find out the behavior of atoms. Although materials at nano-size are smaller than atoms of those materials. From this point of view, they have succeeded to find the behavior of materials at minute scale. Besides they are increasing designing incredible materials at nano-level and thereby, investigating the acts of these materials at this very small level. Therefore, the technology involved in such a minute scale is Nanotechnology.
Some observations of nanotechnology
There are some inquiries which are called into question about nanoscience. These are listed as follows-
- Is it good for the human being?
- Could it accidentally cause harm?
- Does man it use to hurt people intentionally?
- Would it be beneficial for human being ultimately?
Insights into nanotechnology
There are inside views of nanotech to utilize it with care. These are as follows-
- Can it help us?
- Is it dangerous?
- How do we use it responsibly?
- How do we use it carefully?
Why is nanotechnology special?
This is special because of having its quantum effects and structures. Their tiny structures give some pieces of information about their interaction with other materials. The smaller the size of particles the larger has its surface area. So, they can change the properties of ultimate materials easily and thereby, improve properties such as electrical, conductivity and many other physical as well as chemical properties.
