Nanotechnology is an applied science. The most important thing is that Nanotechnology research has continuously made it possible to create new technology using different techniques and tools. Nanotechnology has the potential to revolutionize the life of materials used in every sector of our lives. It helps to improve products and production processes with better techniques and new functionality that we only dreamed about in the past. In coming years, you can expect to see major impact in every industrial sectors. Those major impacts will eventually hit the market place and enter into the consumer markets. That is when the average person like you and I will really see and feel its impact.
The United States Department of Energy believe that they have figure out a way to use nano technology to build electric circuits and chemical sensors by controlling a fabrication technique for drawing chemical patters as small as twenty nanometers.This has allowed researchers to use an atomic force microscope tip as a pen to deposit ink molecules through molecular diffusion onto the surface. The ability to work with such precision enable researchers to use the tool like a soldering iron which means that more nano size devices can be created.
