Nanotechnology Research

nanotechnology image


Nanotechnology involves materials so small (1 to 100 nanometers in size) that they exhibit unique properties. To put the nanoscale size range nanoscale in perspective, a hair is about 50,000 nanometers thick. The goal of nanotechnology research is to understand the unique properties of nanosized particles and use that knowledge to create new, high-performance materials, devices, and processes.
