Nanomechanical Structures: Nanotechnology’s Workforce

Written by admin on August 2, 2013 – 12:00 am

Nanotechnology is the process of using function systems and engineering them at the molecular scale. This technology is used to improve products, tools and machinery in a variety of industries. Products that were developed using nanotechnology includes sun screens, self-cleaning glass and scratch-resistant coatings. Fabrics that your clothing is made out of is also getting help with nanotechnology. Scientists are working on creating clothing that acts as a sunscreen. The fabrics will give you protection from UV radiation from Read more »

The Smallest Measures: Nanotechnology Leads The Way In Preventative Health

Written by admin on July 31, 2013 – 12:00 am

Nanotechnology is truly incredible, seeing as how some of the particles involved to not function like the main particles that we think of as the building blocks of the universe. In reality, they are smaller than these blocks, and so they are not bound by all of the same laws and rules. When this type of technology is used correctly, it can really lead the way in preventative medicine. It has the ability to be used in ways Read more »

Beyond Physics: How Nanotechnology Seems To Violate Common Sense

Written by admin on July 27, 2013 – 12:00 am

Nanotechnology is a relatively recent but revolutionary field of scientific study. Such technology is essentially conduced on the smallest possible scale known for mankind to work on. Nanotechnology involves working on the atomic scale and doing some very sophisticated procedures that seem impossible on a much large scale.

From a physics perspective, atoms and subatomic particles are not really effected by the force of gravity like other much larger objects we see in daily life. Atoms and subatomic Read more »

Twenty Mind-Blowing Pieces of Nanoart

Written by admin on July 23, 2013 – 12:00 am

What can you learn when you look at twenty pieces of nanoart? The first thing that you will see is that the world always holds unexpected things, which are often beautiful. For a long time, people were wrong about which particles were the smallest in the universe, but nanotechnology has shown that there are always more things below the surface. When they are used to create art, on the smallest scale that is currently possible, it changes the way that you see the world. You see the tremendous beauty of things that are so small Read more »

Five Recent Nanotechnology Breakthroughs

Written by admin on July 20, 2013 – 12:00 am

As a finely tuned collaboration between the two disciplines of science and engineering,, nanotechnology makes strides as it manipulates various materials at the atomic and molecular levels. The field’s possibilities are continually being tested with a sense great promise by those in the field of study. Here are five recent nanotechnology breakthroughs to give you an idea of its practical possibilities. Nanomagnets to Clean Drinking Water. Scientists and engineers have banded together to create rust-based magnets to clean up water reserves that are infiltrated by arsenic. The arsenic binds to a handheld magnet, and one can simply lift the arsenic from the water source. Crushing Prostate Cancer with Nanoparticles. This exciting breakthrough targets cancer cells with chemotherapy and eradicates tumors without damaging surrounding cells and tissue. Spinal Cord Repair. The use of nanotubes to mimic the structure and function of the spinal column gives hope to those struck with spinal injuries, spinal abnormalities and spinal degeneration. A Flu Test Using Gold Nanoparticles. This breakthrough uses gold nanoparticles’ ability to radically disperse light to pinpoint the presence of the flu immediately. Nanotube Electrical Outlets Using a Single Tube. This breakthrough may alter the future of computing.
