The Science Behind The Nanotechnology Phenomenon

Abstract:
Origins of Nanotechnology

This much hyped field of nanotechnology as many believe is not entirely new and unheard of. In fact, the importance of nanotechnology was first pointed out by Feynman as early as 1959, in his much cited lecture entitled "There's plenty of room at the bottom". Through this lecture he had put forward a vision which is recently coming to realization. With the recent advances in fabricating and characterization techniques, nanotechnology research as taken great strides. Throughout various fields of science and technology, a push towards the use of nano-scale technology is well underway. Moreover, nanotechnology is being hailed as the technology with the potential to revolutionize our industries and our daily lives. So, what is so unique about nanotechnology that gives it such great potentials?
