What's that nano-thing?

Abstract:
Nanotechnology and one of its offshoots, spintronics, are behind some of the most spectacular recent progress in computer-related applications and way beyond. Nanotechnology is quickly changing the world of cosmetics, car making, health, toys, sports and many others.

Large capacity disk drives are based on GMR (Giant Magneto Resistance), a direct consequence of spintronics. In as little as three to six years from now, and specifically in the IT field, we will be seeing not only hard disks with mammoth-size storage, but also computer screens with a kind of resolution, size, thinness and flexibility that we cannot even dream of today. All this thanks to the brilliant minds behind nanotechnologies.
