Why care about nanotechnology?
Because technology is reshaping human life, and nanotechnology is where technology is going. Today's nanoscale science and technology includes research and development on the cutting edge of a broad range of fields. The term "nanotechnology" has been applied wherever scientists and technologists are grappling with the fundamental building blocks of matter, atoms and molecules. Nanoscale science and technology includes the frontiers of chemistry, materials, medicine, and computer hardware - the research that enables the continuing technology revolution.
