WHY NANOTECHNOLOGY IS IMPORTANT
WHY NANOTECHNOLOGY IS IMPORTANTNanotechnology is important due to the enormous impact it is expected to have on society. The ability to engineer materials, and thereby products made from these materials, by accurately manipulating the position of each atom or molecule in a substance translates into extraordinary levels of deterministic control over the structure of the material that heretofore have not been available to manufacturers. This ability will allow materials to have properties that have been previously unavailable such as much higher strength, more robustness, lower weight, and exceptional material behaviors. Some believe that nanotechnology will result in the creation of the next industrial revolution.
