Nano/Emerging Technologies



Over centuries, innovative methods and new technologies are developed. These emerging technologies are technical innovations which represent progressive developments within a field for competitive advantage. Emerging technologies in general denote significant technological developments that broach new territory in some significant way in their field. One of the emerging technologies that benefits from microscopes, spectrometers, and X-ray systems includes nanotechnology.

Nanotechnology is the study of manipulating matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Generally, nanotechnology deals with structures sized between 1 to 100 nanometre in at least one dimension, and involves developing materials or devices within that size. Materials reduced to the nanoscale can show different properties compared to what they exhibit on a macroscale, enabling unique applications. For instance, opaque substances become transparent (copper), stable materials turn combustible (aluminum), and insoluble materials become soluble (gold). A material such as gold, which is chemically inert at normal scales, can serve as a potent chemical catalyst at nanoscales. Much of the fascination with nanotechnology stems from these quantum and surface phenomena that matter exhibits at the nanoscale.
