Nano technology existed since 500 BC, says Kulkarni

Abstract:
"Ratan Tata may have christened his small car 'Nano', but there is nothing 'nano' about it. However, you never know. In the future, a small car could be made from nano materials. Till then, the latest developments in the field of nano technology and some already existing can continue to change things around us," said Prof Sulbha Kulkarni, a UGC professor at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), on Monday.

She was delivering a lecture titled 'Nanotechnology - present and future' at the Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology in memory of Prof V G Bhide (former vice chancellor of Pune University), a well known scientist, educationist and visionary from Nagpur.
