What are atoms and molecules? These tiny particles make up everything in the universe, even the the smallest nanotechnologies. That’s pretty small! Come see how atoms and molecules are the building blocks of everything around us.
Want to learn more about nanotechnology? Here’s a collection of some more articles with a range of topics fromnanobots to carbon nanotubes to tiny muscle machines. Explore how nanotechnology can be used to enhance everyday life~!
Medicine can be pretty powerful, but sometimes it’s best if you can deliver it only to the places in your body that needs it. Learn about all the different ways that nanotechnologycan help scientists develop smarter medicines that can make us healthier!
In 1989, a group of scientists led by Don Eigler astounded the world by using just a few atoms—thirty-five in all—to spell out I-B-M. This simple demonstration of moving atoms would become an icon for nanotechnology. The real challenge of moving individual atoms is that everyday objects are so big compared to an atom.
Come join us on a quest into the world of nanotechnology and things that are too small to see! From the man that started it all, Richard Feynman to moving atoms to solar cells to stretching DNA – prepare to wowed by the amazing things that you can do with nanotechnology!
Nanotechnology is all around us - not just in our computers and iPods, but also in our food! Nanotechnology is everywhere and you might be surprised to find out that it isn’t new! Goofy foods like mayonnaise are made with nanotechnology.
Confused? Don’t worry! Here’s some basic information on what you need to know about nanotechnology. These articles will give you a general overview and bring you through the A-B-C’s of nanotechnology to get you started on your scientific journey. Sit back and enjoy~!
What is self assembly? Few things in life are free. It usually takes parts and tools and some energy to build stuff. But can you imagine a bunch of parts assembling into something all by themselves? Do we have to go into a high-tech laboratory to see things that self assemble? Nah. It is all around you!
