About ISNslashWhat is Nanotechnology?

Nanotechnology is the manipulation of materials or devices at the nanometer scale (one billionth of a meter), often at the level of individual atoms and molecules. Because the laws of classical Newtonian physics do not apply at these tiny length scales, engineers can often exploit unusual properties in nanostructured materials and devices.
