Thus, the nanotechnology paradigm was formed at the turn of the s, while the s and s are the start of development of nanotechnology in its own right. Accordingly, one could say that the whole period up to the s may be considered as pre-history of nanotechnology. The end of this period was the appearance of conditionsFile Size: KB. Nanotechnology is often described as an emerging technology—one that not only holds promise for society, but also is capable of revolutionizing our approaches to common problems. Nanotechnology is not a completely new field; however, it is only recently that discoveries in this field have advanced so far as to warrant examination of their impact upon the world around us.

Taken from the Greek, nano means 'one billionth part of' a whole; or very, very small. Nanotechnology is the next step after miniaturization. This book explores the cutting edge of a new technology that will find usage in almost every single aspect of modern society/5.   Believe it or not, nanotechnology is already a part of our everyday life, and the chances are that you already make use of nanotechnology, whether you know it or not. In this article I want to highlight some of the ways in which we’re already relying on nanotechnology to help us in a whole range of different contexts.

  The golden era of nanotechnology began in the s when Kroto, Smalley, and Curl discovered fullerenes and Eric Drexler of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) used ideas from Feynman’s “There is Plenty of Room at the Bottom” and Taniguchi’s term nanotechnology in his book titled, “Engines of Creation: The Coming Era of Cited by: Ruth Lyddy, in Information Resources in Toxicology (Fourth Edition), Introduction. Nanotechnology is commonly considered to deal with particles in the size range.

'Nano' is a prefix used to describe 'one billionth', or 10 −9, of concept of nanotechnology was introduced by physics Nobel laureate Richard P Feynman in his famous lecture entitled 'There's plenty of room at the bottom' at the December meeting of the American Physical Society [].Since then, there have been many revolutionary developments in physics, chemistry and biology.

The term "nanotechnology" (which paralleled Taniguchi's "nano-technology") was independently applied by Drexler in his book Engines of Creation: The Coming Era of Nanotechnology, which proposed the idea of a nanoscale "assembler" which would be able to build a copy of itself and of other items of arbitrary complexity.

Nanotechnology is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular level. The field combines elements of physics and molecular chemistry with engineering to take advantage of unique properties that occur at nanoscale.Current developments in nanotechnology are increasing at such a rapid pace that it is a challenge for any government to stay up-to-date with progress.

Nanotechnology has received considerable attention from scientific communities and governments worldwide. The United States, France, Japan, and Canada have centers and government agencies where they make assessments of the potential risks and Author: Lynn Goldman, Christine Coussens.
