Introduction to Nanotechnology
Nanotechnology is the application of scientific and engineering principles to make and utilize very small things. Learn about the basics of this new science.
Inventions Using Nanotechnology
Nanotechnology is changing every industrial sector - view nanotechnology inventions.
How do we measure the size of nanotechnology materials? We measure materials using the nanoscale.
Nanotechnology and the Scanning Tunneling Microscope
Nanoscale science was enabled by advances in microscopy, most notably the electron, scanning tunneling and atomic force microscopes, among others. The 1986 Nobel Prize for Physics honored three of the inventors of the electron and scanning tunnel microscopes, Ernst Ruska, Gerd Binnig and Heinrich Rohrer.
Nanotechnology - Foresight Institute
Non-profit institute focused on nanotechnology, the coming ability to build materials and products with atomic precision
Commercial services include consulting, technology monitoring, and in-depth analysis. Excellent source for nanotechnolgy news.
Nanotechnology Institute of Physics
Monthly journal for aspects of nanoscale science and technology.
Institute of Nanotechnology
U.K. based nanotechnology information providers.
History of Nanotechnology
The term "nanotechnology" was defined by Tokyo Science University Professor Norio Taniguchi in a 1974 paper.
How Nanotechnology Will Work
Nanotechnology is a hybrid science combining engineering and chemistry. Atoms and molecules stick together because they have complementary shapes that lock together, or charges that attract.
Great images and movies related to nanotechnology.
Nanotechnology: Special Report
Is nanotechnology the impetus for the next Industrial Revolution?
Patenting in the Field of Nanotechnology
In considering novelty, the size of the nanoscale component should be sufficient to distinguish that component from that of the prior art.
National Nanotechnology Initiative
An investment programme for the basic molecular nanotechnological research, provided by the US administration's federal funding.
