Q. – What is Nano technology?

 

(Next revolution in technology – Nanotechnology)

 

Ans. – Nanotechnology is the study of matter at a miniature level called the nano scale. A nano meter is equal to one billionth of a meter. Nanotechnology facilitates research on particles less than one billionth of a meter in diameter, and thus paves way to some amazing inventions and discoveries.

The biological properties of atoms and molecules are found to greatly differ on a nano scale, i.e. at 100nm or below compared to what they are in bulk matter. Exploiting this feature of matter, nanotechnology manipulates single atoms to discover new properties and then uses these to create improved materials, devices and systems.

Hailed as the technology of the future, it is hoped that nanotechnology will help overcome some of the biggest challenges mankind. Its interventions are purported to provide cost effective, renewable energy solutions that reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, take agricultural production to a new level through genetic improvements and provide a range of materials that are lighter, smaller and also work smarter!
