Nanotechnology is a broad term that covers many areas of science, research and technology. Nanotechnology is a field of research and innovation concerned with building 'things' - generally, materials and devices - on the scale of atoms and molecules
Potential Benefits of Nanotechnology:
A group of Japanese techies have designed a toothbrush that uses super skinny nylon bristles wrapped in nano-size mineral ions to scrub teeth clean. Stains are lifted, plaque and other unwanted materials are avoided, and the enamel that defends your teeth from decay is protected.
The fight against climate change means we need new ways to generate and use electricity, and nanotechnology is already playing a role.
A new Swedish company named "HyMeAir" is seeking to raise funds on kickstarter.com to support the development of its Nano Towers that will filter out hydrogen and methane from the air when the wind blows .
Scientists at the University of Southampton have made a major step forward in the development of digital data storage that is capable of surviving for billions of years.
Using nanostructured glass, scientists from the University’s Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) have developed the recording and retrieval processes of five dimensional (5D) digital data by femtosecond laser writing.
Researchers from RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia say they have developed a cheap and efficient new way to infuse textiles with tiny strands of silver – which can degrade organic matter when exposed to light.
The challenge for researchers has been to bring the concept out of the lab by working out how to build these nanostructures on an industrial scale and permanently attach them to textiles.
3D rendering of IBM Research lab-on-a-chip nanotechnology that can separate biological particles down to 20 nanometers (nm) in diameter, a scale that gives access to important particles such as DNA, viruses and exosomes.
The IBM team's work has focused on exosomes which are vesicles that contain information about the health status of the originating cell that they are shed from, revealing the presence and state of developing cancer and other diseases.
Researchers at MIT are seeking to redesign concrete — the most widely used human-made material in the world — by following nature’s blueprints.
In a paper published online in the journal Construction and Building Materials, the team contrasts cement paste — concrete’s binding ingredient — with the structure and properties of natural materials such as bones, shells, and deep-sea sponges.
A British company, called "Surrey NanoSystems" has produced a strange material so black that it absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of visual light, setting a new world record.
This "super black" material is named as "vantablack" by combining first letters of the term "Vertically Aligned NanoTube Arrays". It can be used for enabling astronomical cameras, telescopes and infrared scanning systems to function more effectively.
