Learn About Nanotechnology

Learn about Nanotechnology and understand how it can be applied in many industries

 

Nanoscience is the study of structures and molecules on the very small scales of nanometres. The technology that utilises it in practical applications, such as devices, is called nanotechnology.

This course will help you understand how nanotechnology works and where it can be applied to produce or enhance items.

Nanoscience and nanotechnology are commonly misunderstood as synonyms, but there is a difference between the two terms. Nanoscience is the study of structures and molecules on the very small scales of nanometres. The technology that utilises it in practical applications, such as devices, is called nanotechnology.

Nanotechnology can be defined as the technology that deals with the design and production of devices and structures in nanoscale of 1 to 100-nanometre dimensions.

This futuristic branch of science has the potential to revolutionise many fields. Many products that are currently on the market and in daily use, make use of nanoscale materials and processes in their production.

Nanotechnology shapes the molecular structure of matters by altering their intrinsic properties to obtain materials with advanced applications.

An example of this is graphene, a modified carbon that is harder than steel, lighter than aluminium and nearly transparent. Graphene has various applications in sectors such as electronics, energy, biomedicine, and defence.
