Nanotechnology

View this topic in
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. (Wikipedia.org)

Silver nanoparticles in nonlinear microscopy

D. J. Rativa; A. S. L. Gomes; S. Wachsmann-Hogiu; D. L. Farkas; R. E. de Araujo 2007 SBMO/IEEE MTT-S International Microwave and Optoelectronics Conference, 2007

Nanotechnology has led to the manufacture of nanometer-sized objects which can be explored in multiphoton microscopy. In particular, metal nanoparticles (NPs) do not generate the multiphoton signal by itself, but rather it can enhance the nonlinear (NL) emission of fluorochromes, owing to the influence of local field effects. Energy transfer process is also observed in systems consisting of metal nanoparticles ...

Field-effect control of electro-osmotic flow with synchronized AC-switching of channel and gate potentials

E. J. van der Wouden; D. Liang; D. C. Hermes; J. G. E. Gardeniers; A. van den Berg 19th IEEE International Conference on Micro Electro Mechanical Systems, 2006

Electroosmotic flow (EOF) in a microchannel can be controlled electronically by use of an electrode embedded in the wall of the channel. By setting a voltage to the electrode, the zeta-potential at the wall can be changed locally. Thus, the electrode acts as a "gate" for liquid flow, in analogy with a gate in a field-effect transistor. This paper describes ...

    Nanotechnology is an upcoming yet promising technology with respect to the development of well-established products. Nanofibers are potentially recent additions to materials in relation to tissue engineering (TE). Nanofiber-based scaffolds are being explored as scaffolds for TE applications. Electrospinning has developed into a versatile technique to fabricate polymeric nanofiber matrices, and the ability to incorporate bioactive therapeutic molecules without adversely affecting their structural integrity and biological activity using the mild electrospinning process has generated significant interest in polymeric nanofiber-based drug release patterns by changing the mode of encapsulation as well as by varying the matrix polymer. Scaffold composition and fabrication can be controlled to confirm desired properties and biofunctionalities. Interaction between the stem cells and nanofibers are crucial in a cell-scaffold matrix while using them for different TE applications. This chapter finally talks about the stem cell-nanofiber interactions in regenerative medicine and TE.
