Nanotechnology (sometimes shortened to "nanotech") is the study of manipulating matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Generally, nanotechnology deals with structures sized between 1 to 100 nanometre in at least one dimension, and involves developing materials or devices possessing at least one dimension within that size. Quantum mechanical effects are very important at this scale, which is in the quantum realm. (

Toward the development of tissue- engineered vascular grafts, they include surface topography to direct vascular cells, micropatterned cell sheets, and nanofibrous matrices for scaffolds. Additionally, microfluidic systems to control flow and cell location have given us methods to study angiogenesis under tightly regulated conditions. Finally, microfabricated scaffolds and nanofiber gels are designed to enhance vascularization_in vivo_, bringing tissue engineering one step closer to clinical success.

  • Representing Nanotechnology and Its Publics in the Science Museum

    As nanotechnology became a major science policy topic and a source of public concern, science museums rapidly appeared as sites for the public display of the field. However, there is more at stake in the science museum than the passive representation of nanotechnology. This chapter argues that science museums are sites where nanotechnology is problematized.

  • Mobilizing against, Mobilizing within Nanotechnology

    The previous chapters have identified various problematizations of nanotechnology, which have been described through the analysis of agencements. We encountered agencements that represent nanotechnology in museums; agencements based on technologies of democracy; agencements that define regulatory categories; and agencements that make people, objects, and organizations “responsible.” How then to reconstruct consistent democratic spaces from the variety of these descriptions?
