Molecular Manipulation - How Tiny Particles Are Becoming Big Business

Abstract:
For most people - nanotechnology - or more precisely, technological applications that arise from manipulating matter at the molecular scale of billionths of a meter - exists only in the futuristic realm of science fiction and fantasy. “Borg” drones on Star Trek relentlessly seek to assimilate human beings by injecting them with “nanites.” However, nanotechnology has also become a growing research field and a large-scale international business endeavor.
