Nano World: Software to speed nanotech
New consortia of corporations, universities and federal agencies are seeking to accelerate the development in the wide-open field of nanotechnology software -- programs to create and enhance devices with features on the molecular scale.
The software takes known mechanical, thermal, electrical, chemical, optical and magnetic properties of atoms and molecules and runs a gamut of calculations to simulate how they should behave on the level of nanometers, or billionths of a meter. In this way, scientists can run thousands of virtual experiments to see which of them might work best in the real world, instead of wasting time and resources pursuing dead ends.
