What is Nanotechnology?
  • Nano-technology mainly consists of the
    processing of, separation, consolidation, and
    deformation of materials by one atom or by one
    molecule.

  • Technology based on the manipulation of
    individual atoms and molecules to build
    structures to complex atomic specification.
