Nanotechnology – Everything you Need to Know

What is Nanotechnology?

Nanotechnology is science, engineering, and technology where matter (physical substance) is being manipulated at atomic and molecular scale at the size under 1 to 100 nanometers. A nanometer is one-billionth of a meter. It is the study, research, and application of extremely small things in different fields like physics, biology, chemistry, engineering, and materials science.

Is Nanotechnology Real?

Yes, Nanotechnology is real, but it is not like how you see advanced machines and Iron Man suits in movies. It is a technology advancement used in different fields like medicine, where this technology is a revolution in Cancer Treatment, and many more. Read this complete article for more understanding.

Who is the Father of Nanotechnology?

Heinrich Rohrer is the father of nanotechnology. He is one of the founder scientists of the technology field and also a Nobel holder. In 1986 Rohrer got a Nobel prize in Physics.

Can we See Nanotechnology?

Yes and No both in together. Now you might think about how it is possible. Simply nanoscale is extremely small, so you can’t see it in the naked eye. Still, you can see some gadgets made by nanotechnology because when a combination of different nanoparticles made a gadget that became larger in many cases, so it is visible to the naked eye, for example, Mobile SOCs.

Why is Nanotechnology Important?

Nanotechnology is the most crucial technology because it has the potential to solve many problems, such important as healthcare, hunger, drinking water, and even living houses.

In the Manufacturing sector, lots of things invented from materials such as cloth that can change color, advanced adhesives, self-cleaning construction materials, robots that can see and feel.

New information technologies, such as quantum computing and microchips (SOCs), are capable of storing billions of bytes of information in a device.

In the Medical field, scientists able to create such a nanobot that made it possible to transport medicines directly to the tumor of cancer to destroy it. These are small blood vessels flow with the blood.

Along with all fields, nanotechnology also benefices the environment with great technologies, such as water purification, controlling pollution systems, new sources of sustainable and clean energy, and many more.

What is Nanobot?

Nanobot is the robot that’s size is in nanoscale 1 to 100 nanometer where nanoparticles used to build a robot. Adriano Cavalcanti is known as the inventor of nanorobot. He made the first hardware architecture of nanobot for medical purposes, which include nanobioelectronics for different tasks.

Does Processor use Nanotechnology?

Today’s hand holding Mobile phones have much more computing power than previously used giant computers, and the process will continue. But how it happens! Today’s processors made by nanoelectronics technology. The processor consists of atom-thin wires and as small as molecular-sized transistors that make it small in size to fit in your mobile phone and laptop.

How Small is Nano?

According to the International Systems of Units, nano stands as one-billionths or 10-9, So 1 nanometer is one-billionth of a meter. It is difficult even to imagine how small it is, so as a comparison, a paper sheet is approximately 100,000 nanometers thick, and human hair is about 80,000 – 100,000 nanometers wide.

What is Nano Particle?

A nanoparticle is a particle within the size between 1 to 100 nanometers with a surrounding interfacial layer. The layer affects all of its properties, and it also nanoscale matter’s an integral part. The coating consists of organic and inorganic molecules. Organic Molecule: carbohydrate, protein, and lipid. Inorganic Molecule: zinc oxide, silicon dioxide, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, and silver. In nanotechnology, nanoparticle function in a whole unit as respect for its transport and properties.

What is Nano Food?

Where Nanotechnology used in any work from production to packaging is call as nanofood. In a food industry where the technology used into package food, used any nanotools or nanomaterials are uses in food for color nutrition, flavor anything is used considered as nanofood. The primary purpose of nanofood production is to decrease cost, increase food safety, and food lifespan. But there have many inorganic nanoparticles that are harmful, so nanofood technology needs improvement. Nevertheless, hundreds of food companies are using nanomaterials to produce food.

What is Nano Product?

Nanotechnology is using in a consumer product is known as nano product. You might already be using these products without knowing about it. There have millions of nanoproducts present. Like skincare, where nanoparticles provide vitamins, sunscreens with UV rays blocking nanoparticles. Solar cells, flame retardants with carbon nanofibers, fishing rods (silica nanoparticle used). Self healable lather, computer processor, and many more.

How does Nanotechnology Work?

It is the most commonly asked question of how nanotechnology works, but it is not as simple as you might think. The technology is working in a completely different manner, and it is quantum physics. Nanoparticles are extremely small, that general physics is not working at this scale. Quantum physics works appropriately at the atomic level, which is 0.1 nm. Still, nanotechnology works at the range between 1 to 100 nm, so the farthest thing like quantum teleportation is not possible here. For more information, check out this.

What is Nanomedicine?

Nanomedicine is the application of nanotechnology in the medical field for healthcare purposes. It is a revolutionizing technology in this field where nanoparticles and nanorobots are using for diagnosing and sensing by using biosensors inside the human body for any disease. And mainly nanorobots can cure cancer by directly send medicine to the cancer cells.

Is Nanotechnology Safe?

Meanwhile, nanotechnology is revolutionizing technology in no doubt. There have hundreds of products using this technology to improve the way things work. In every field, it is doing well, from mobile chips to medicine everywhere nanotechnology is using, but it is at risk. Nanoparticles are using in food industries to improve the food quality and can manipulate the ingredients in food, and its a good thing. But some inorganic nanoparticles are harmful to human bodies those are using in nanofood technology and skincare products.
