It involves, penetrating down the nano-scale level i.e. one billionth of a meter or 1/100,000 the width of a human hair. The concept picked up when Richard Feynman in one of his talks way back in 1959 mentioned the progress made by science in the field of miniaturisation, he asked... Introduction to Nano- and Micro-Technology The word nano finds its origin from Greek, meaning midget. It de s a billionth part (i.e. 10-9). Similarly a nanometer (nm) is one billionth part of a meter....

...nanotechnology which deals with resizing large systems and devices as well as making effective products highly. This paper talks about the meaning, history, application, and limitations among other aspects of nanotechnology. Definition, Meaning and History of Nanotechnology Nanotechnology is basically defined as engineering that deals with functional systems at a molecular scale. It can also be defined as the ability of the engineers to make new attributes by controlling features at a nanometre scale (Davies 1). This is the technology that has been used to manufacture the microsystems which have reduced voluminous... ? Contents Introduction 2 Definition, Meaning and History of Na chnology 2 Recent...

...Molecular Diode Constable and Somerville 2003, p.239, define nanotechnology as “manipulation of matter on atomic and molecular scales”. (2). Molecular electronics face two types of challenges. The first challenge is building... a closed circuit, making the ideal candidates for development as molecular diodes. This exciting development allows examination of a single molecule through the application of a voltage, or a mechanical force, or an optical field, and measure current and the response. The behavior of single molecules is governed by the laws of quantum physics and this capability makes it possible to study the properties that are distinct from the properties in the...
