Nanoscience? What's that?Nanoscience is understanding matter at dimensions between 1-100 nanometers. To put that in perspective, consider that a single sheet of paper is about 100,000 nanometers thick! Nanoscience involves imaging, measuring, modeling and manipulating matter within this scale. Nanoscience is changing the way we live by creating smaller, faster, stronger, safer and more reliable applications. Nanomedicine is devising improved methods for delivery of medicines that cause fewer side effects. Nano technology is creating solar panels that are smaller and more efficient, promising cheap solar power in the near future. Nanoscience offers many eco-friendly possibilities in creating vehicles that are lighter and more feul efficient, in the detection and clean up of environmental contaminants and in water purification systems.
