What is nanotechnology?
A description • Nanotechnology is the understanding and control of matter at
dimensions between approximately 1 and 100 nanometers, or
• Unusual physical, chemical, and biological properties can
emerge in materials at the nanoscale. These properties may
differ in important ways from the properties of bulk materials
and single atoms or molecules.
• Encompassing nanoscale science, engineering, and
technology, nanotechnology involves imaging, measuring,
modeling, and manipulating matter at this length scale.
