Abstract

Nanotechnology is a broad term that covers many areas of science, research and technology. In its most basic form, it can be described as working with things that are small. The area of investigation is defined by the study, design, manipulation, manufacture, and control of materials or devices by physical or chemical means at resolutions on the order of one billionth of a meter. The potential for a wide range of applications makes a basic understanding of nanotechnology important to us. This article presents an introduction to nanotechnology and discusses the implications of it that could impact the human life in the near future.
