What is nanotechnology and where can it be applied?

*Nanotechnology is essentially the study of minute particles, knows as nanoparticles, their design, and applications. Nanoparticles typically range between 1 to 100 nanometres, where one nanometre is one-billionth of a meter.

*Nanotechnology manipulates the whole molecular structure of materials to change their intrinsic properties and acquire others on the back of revolutionary applications.

  • This particular method is used to produce structures in inorganic materials, coal, metals, semiconductors, and  silicon, that don’t function under humidity.

*The nanotechnology space is expected to grow globally, packed with technology advancement, increased government support, and increased private investment. Countries like the US, Brazil and Germany are expected to lead the sector.
