Societal Implications of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

“Societal Implications of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology”

by the National Science Foundation

 

“A revolution is occurring in science and technology, based on the recently developed ability to measure, manipulate and organize matter on the nanoscale — 1 to 100 billionths of a meter. At the nanoscale, physics, chemistry, biology, materials science, and engineering converge toward the same principles and tools. As a result, progress in nanoscience will have very far-reaching impact.”
