Of Ants and Nanocomposites

Abstract:
A few years ago HP had an ad looking at the applications of nanotechnology, and one of the applications mentioned was a cell phone so small even an ant could use it. The ad polarised people, with one camp muttering that the things were already too small, resulting in a host of wrongly numbers on increasingly tiny keypads, while the other camp drooled over the fact that there are around 10 quadrillion ants alive on the planet at any one time (around two million per person) and rushed off to write business plans.
