Nanotechnology and Micromachines


Title: Hardback
Sale price£100.00



Nanotechnology is the study and use of structures between 1 nanometer and 100 nanometers in size. To give you an idea of how small that is, it would take eight hundred 100 nanometer particles side by side to match the width of a human hair. Scientists have been studying and working with nanoparticles for centuries, but the effectiveness of their work has been hampered by their inability to see the structure of nanoparticles. In recent decades the development of microscopes capable of displaying particles as small as atoms has allowed scientists to see what they are working with. Molecular manufacturing is at the convergence of several powerful technologies. Living cells join molecules together in precise patterns to form functional structures. Rapid prototyping systems form parts directly from blueprints under computer control. Automated factories assemble parts into products. Molecular manufacturing will combine all of these capabilities and more. Nanomachines are devices built from individual atoms. Some researchers believe that nanomachines will one day be able to enter living cells to fight disease. They also hope to one day build nanomachines that will be able to rearrange atoms in order to construct new objects. If they succeed, nanomachines could be used to literally turn dirt into food and perhaps eliminate poverty. The book will serve as an ultimate resource book for everyone who would like to know the wide range of prospects in the emerging applications of Nanotechnology.
