It’s the biggest technology challenge since the information super high way. Engaging scientist, entrepreneurs and governments form countries all over the world. Public debates, press conferences and expos around the world this technology is revolutionizing science. Not visible to the naked eye, tiny self-assembling Nano systems offer big solutions to some of the world’s most complex problems. This is science on the Nano scale, or scientist it’s the largest topic with hundreds of thousand possibilities. To put things in more of an understandable perspective, the smallest ...view middle of the document...
They used gold and silver Nano particles to make really intriguing color combinations in glass. It is also about the technologies. Materials used in Nano technology behave differently in the Nano world. Scientist can now direct their behavior to create new and phenomenal capabilities. Like liquid electronics found in smart phones, embodying Nano particles suspended in liquid that go where ever the user wants them to go. Capabilities like this can be found in the newer generation of Nano technology today’s society has adopted. This liquid state of Nano cells found in smart phones such as the Apple IPhone can reassemble themselves at a touch of the keypad. More break through include the development of Nano engineered Nano wires. Projecting scientific art the can easily brighten the surroundings at one’s home or office. It is common to find that most people when asked to refer to Nano technology mention the Apple IPod.
Many people do not realize that there are Nano particles and processors all around us. In the natural world a perfect example of Nano in natural environments can be the silk sun by spiders. Scientists have wondered how the Nano fibers in the webbing can be so strong. It is all powered by Nano technology. The way the molecules in the spider’s web combine from carbon Nano tubes that conjoin to where it generates high levels of strength and flexibly in the webbing itself. Another place where people may not look to find Nano technology is in the manufactured world of society. Nanotechnology has aided the advancement in apparel as well. Chemical engineers have used nanotechnology to improve the strength and durability of cloths through structures called nanowhiskers. The purpose these Nano hair-like structures serve is to make liquid roll right off the cloths of the user. To put this matter in perspective, just imagine a peach and how the fuzzy outside layer of it help water form into beads and roll right of its’ surface. Each synesthetic nanowhisker measures 10 nanometers long. Athletic socks also contain nanotechnology. Nike has been known to use nanometer silver particles that bond with the fibers of the sock to provide protection against odor and fungus within the sock. Form running shoes to specialized sports clothing to minimize the effects of the temperature, Nano technology can be found in each and every one of these places. Nano Scientists even explore exploit the strange properties of glass by using special coatings to change the way it behaves on the glass to provide a unique effect of protection depending on the purpose of use. Scientists and Nano engineers are collaborating to bring these extraordinary possibilities that lay within this technology to the public. Nano manufacturing can solve many of today’s complications faced by humans and animals alike.
Solutions to problems in health, water, energy, and even next-generation consumer gadgets can all be found in Nano technology. Manufacturing on a Nano scale can...
