Nanotechnology is the Engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. Physicist Richard Feynman is regarded as the Father of Nanotechnology. The idea of nanotechnology was put out in 1959 in a seminar by Feynman under the head, ‘There’s plenty of room at the bottom’, however, back then people weren’t really appreciative of the theory. Later as technology saw unexpected growth, this infamous seminar of Feynman was taken back and published to have a better impact on the audience.
What is Nanotechnology?
It is all about the size, that’s what lays the foundation for the concept of nanotechnology. Anything that consumed a space of one millimeter was given a chance to consume only one-tenth of it, that’s what nanotechnology is. It works at the molecular scale, and the simplest of ways to explain the size of a nanoparticle is to say ‘it is one-tenth of a millimeter.’ The New-Age science is all about using complex mechanisms to make things compact, and you can simply do it with the help of nanotechnology. The simplest definition of nanotechnology is that ‘it is the science of manipulating materials on the atomic scale to build microscopic devices like the robot.Read More
