Was Tipu's sword made using nanotechnology?

Abstract:
Indians had the know-how for nanotechnology, one of the latest branches in science, from 18th century only, a Nobel Laureate in Chemistry said on Monday.

Robert F Curl, the Nobel Laureate, said right from the 18th Century, Indians were using nanotechnology, and the sword of Tipu Sultan is one example.

However, he refused to comment as to whether they were using it knowingly or unknowingly.

Similarly, there are examples of the use of nanotechnology in preparing glass in Rome, he said speaking to media persons on the sidelines of a lecture.

He also said that there are several examples of people using a technology, by trial and error method, long before it assumed a form of complete branch of study.
