Nanotechnology ("nanotech") is manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular, and supramolecular scale. The earliest, widespread description of nanotechnology referred to the particular technological goal of precisely manipulating atoms and molecules for production of macro scale products, also now referred to as molecular nanotechnology.
Nanotechnology is science, engineering, and technology conducted at the nanoscale, which is about 1 to 100 nanometers. Nanoscience and nanotechnology are the study and application of very small things and can be used across all the other science fields, such as Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Material science, and Engineering.
The implications of nanotechnology are widespread and could include medicine, military applications, computing and astronomy. Nanotechnology is being used already in certain materials like self-cleaning glass, sunscreens, lipsticks and even antibacterial socks!
Future applications for nanotechnology seem only to be limited by the creativity of researchers. Nanotechnology may be used to deliver drugs to just the right place inside the body. There are even scientists who think that nanofoods could be used to trick the body into feeling fuller for longer, stopping us from overeating.
In present days nanotechnology is being used successively in almost all areas of science and engineering. The present application areas are Mechanical, Robotics, Electronics, Electrical, Civil, Information technology, Food, Agriculture, Advance material, Textile, Bio-technology, Transportation, Defense, National security, Medicine, Health, Aerospace, Energy, Environment and many more.
Goals and objectives of nanotechnology
The vision of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) is a future in which the ability to understand and control matter at the nanoscale leads to a revolution in technology and industry that benefits society.
The NNI expedites the discovery, development, and deployment of nanoscale science, engineering, and technology to serve the public good through a program of coordinated research and development associated with the missions of the participating agencies. In order to realize the NNI vision, the NNI agencies are working collectively toward four primary goals; please note that each of the following goals is linked to a page detailing each goal's objectives
1.Advance a world-class nanotechnology research and development program.
2. Facilitate the development of an informatics-based structure for knowledge sharing that includes a compendium of existing knowledge and mechanisms to incorporate new knowledge.
3. Support the development and validation of measurement tools and decision-making models to enable hazard and exposure quantification for human and environmental risk assessment and management.
4. Participate in international efforts, particularly those aimed at generating best practices and agreement standards.
