A matter of scale

Abstract:
Nanotechnology is big news, and increasingly hard to escape. But for process engineers, the science fiction-inspired worries about microscopic robots reducing all matter to 'grey goo' which so alarmed Prince Charles recently, and the serious work on producing minute mechanical components such as pumps and sensors (which would be the components of the fabled 'nano-robots'), are all beside the point.
