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)

  • Investing in nanotechnology

    Summary form only given. Nanotechnology is currently the focus of much investment in the USA and worldwide. In the USA, the federal government has an initiated a broad and ambitious program entitled the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI). It is important to realize that the NNI involves almost all the various US government agencies that are involved in sponsoring basic research and development. The NNI can be viewed as an umbrella for funding research at the forefront of fields across the hard and soft sciences. It should also be noted that the significant budgets now being dedicated to the NNI are not all 'new' money. In many cases, they represent a redirection of existing budget lines. In addition to this federal program, there are a number of equally ambitious state based programs sponsoring nanotechnology. The California investment is perhaps the most visible and includes the creation of the California Nanosystems Institute. Other states have adopted a similar strategy of leveraging their own investment by attracting federal and private funding. A significant fraction of these state investments is going into bricks and mortar and can perhaps best be viewed as a way to boost investment in the infrastructure of university based research. Ultimately, it is believed that the current US investment in nanotechnology will be beneficial to the economic prosperity of the USA. Interestingly, venture capital firms are investing in nanotechnology start-ups. This comes at a time when venture capital financing has dropped dramatically from the last few years. It seems certain that the range of products and applications will be as diverse as the current nanotechnology investment.

  • Resonant electron tunneling through azurin in air and liquid by scanning tunneling microscopy

    Electron transfer through the redox metalloprotein azurin immobilized on Au (111) by its disulphide bridge is studied by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) in buffer solution and (for the first time) in air. STM analysis gives evidences of a stable and robust binding of the molecules in both cases. Bright spots, associated with azurin molecules, are clearly visible in STM images. The image contrast of adsorbed azurin is highly affected by the bias potential with proteins visible only for some well-defined voltage values. This experimental demonstration of the possibility to induce tunneling through azurin in air could disclose very interesting perspectives for the development of protein-based hybrid nanodevices operating in nonliquid environments.

  • Nanotechnology progress and future opportunities: 2000–2020

    Nanotechnology R&D has changed its focus, industrial relevance and governance since 2000 when was proposed in various national programs as a key science and technology development for 21st century. This presentation outlines the progress in foundational knowledge development, its current status supporting about $80 billion production incorporating nanoscale components only in the United States, and likely evolution towards a general purpose technology by 2020. Nanotechnology has already powerful implications in knowledge foundation, advanced materials, catalysts, nanoelectronics, molecular medicine, energy conversion and storage. While general trends publications, patent publications, nanotechnology market and R&D funding continue to grow at an average annual rate of about 25%, the content of research and complexity of the new applications is changing significantly about 2010. In the next decade, the focus of R&D is expected to shift to direct measurements on three- dimensional domains, science based design of fundamentally new products based on complex nanosystems, and serving new areas of relevance such as quantum information systems. An increased focus will be on system nanotechnology as applied to sustainable resources including water, food, energy, materials and clean environment.

  • Nanotechnology Vis-à-Vis Computing: With special references to cloud computing, big data management — A techno managerial knowledge study

    Nanostructures, atoms and molecules are the key matters of nanotechnology. It is applicable in almost all the domain of applied science which includes physics, chemistry, biology, material science, computer science, bio technology and so on. There are huge requirement of nanotechnology in computing and information technology. Nanotechnology has wider scope in computing specially in core computing i.e. use of nano-materials rather silicon chip. Today the size of every kind of electronic devices becomes smaller and for this nanotechnology has played a vital role. The bulk or top- down technology is another important one where applications nanotechnology in computing and information technology taken place. The modern computing and information technology generation seeks more nanotechnology applications for smarter and smaller electronic gadgets. In recent past top down technology is core and very much important criteria for the nanotechnologist and information scientist and technologist are also putting efforts on creation of products by the use of this. In the field of Information Technology, Cloud computing is a kind of mechanism for software and hardware practices empowered by virtualization. The architecture of cloud basically uses less and minimum uses of computer, hardware as well as IT Delivery and in this case application of Nanotechnology are no doubt important and valuable. In recent past Nanotechnology has also created a new avenue for another IT technology i.e. Big Data. In this paper basics of Nanotechnology including its applications in computing and information technology etc have well illustrated. Cloud computing-Big Data Management and their current opportunities in connections with Nanotechnology has also well defined. The paper also prepared with the aspects of issues and challenges as well.

Another essential component of the Alliance is the Nanotechnology Characterization Laboratory where the standard protocols of preclinical analysis for newly derived nanoparticles are developed and performed. The guiding mission of the Alliance is to reach beyond basic research and development toward clinical testing as well as product commercialization. At the conclusion of the first Phase of the Alliance that spanned 2005-2010, several hundred patent disclosures had been filed and dozens of industrial partnerships and spin off companies had been formed. Now as the second Phase begins the OCNR and the Alliance look forward to improve on their successful record of technological innovation and developing commercial entities. Beyond the Alliance, the NIH provides funding opportunities for a vast array of research topics that can be applied to health nanotechnologies, many of which can be applied to an electrical engineering audience.

  • A modularized approach to nanotechnology education: Opportunities, challenges and requirements

    The discipline of nanoscale science has evolved significantly over the last several decades. It has moved from equipment development and discovery at the molecular and atomic level to an increasing number of technology applications and product development. As the discipline has changed so has the approach to training students and employees in the nanoscience area. The educational process has evolved from high level, research based concepts to 2 year programs, nanoscience minors and individual courses. The approaches to nanotechnology education are constantly changing, however an approach that is appearing both in formal and informal venues is that of modularized nanotechnology content. This approach carries the ease of integration as an opportunity, the challenge of creating a complete module and requirements dependent upon location, topic and education level. A summary of these considerations is presented.
