Nanotechnology Summary

Nanotechnology
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nanotechnology (sometimes shortened to “nanotech“) is the study of manipulating matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Generally, nanotechnology deals with developing materials, devices, or other structures with at least one dimension sized from 1 to 100 nanometres. Quantum mechanical effects are important at this quantum-realm scale. Nanotechnology is […]

Philly.com: Science Hints at Alternative Recipes for Life. Evolution is the Common Thread

Sunday, February 12, 2012
Here’s my weekly evolution column, which appears Monday Feb 13 in the Philadelphia Inquirer:
On Star Trek, the aliens often look so human that crew members fall in love with them. But in real life, scientists in the field known as astrobiology can’t be sure alien life would even be carbon-based like us, […]

Scienceray.com: Nanotech’s Next Step

While nature has used nanotechnology for millennia in the form of DNA, a team of scientists have created GNA as a less expensive and more durable replacement. Until a better replacement comes along, GNA is looking to be the building block for future nanotechnology.

Imagine any piece of technology in science fiction […]

ASU Biodesign Institute:

Chemical cousin of DNA new nanotechnology building block
April 28, 2008

In the rapid and fast-growing world of nanotechnology, researchers are continually on the lookout for new building blocks to push innovation and discovery to scales much smaller than the tiniest speck of dust.
In the Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University, researchers are using DNA to make […]
