Advantages of Nanotechnology
Nanotechnology revolutionize a lot of electronic products,procedures, and applications.
Nanotechnology cause more effective energy-producing,
energy-absorbing, and energy storage products in smaller
and more efficient devices are possible. More efficient andsmaller batteries, fuel cells, and solar cells can be builtwith this technology.
Manufacturing sector that will need materials likenanotubes, aero gels, nano particles, and other similaritems to produce their products using nanotechnology.These materials are often stronger, more durable, andlighter than those that are not produced with the help of 
In the medical world, nanotechnology is also seen as abonus since these can help with creating what is calledsmart drugs. These help cure people faster and without
the side effects that other traditional drugs have.
Disadvantages of Nanotechnology
loss of jobs
in the traditional farming andmanufacturing industry.
The development of nanotechnology can also bring aboutthe
crash of certain markets due to the lowering of thevalue of oil and diamonds
due to the possibility of developing alternative sources of energy that are moreefficient and
require the use of fossil fuels.
Atomic weapons can now be more accessible and made tobe more powerful and more destructive
. These can alsobecome more accessible with nanotechnology.
Since these particles are very small,
problems arise from theinhalation of these minute particles
, much like the problemsa person gets from inhaling minute asbestos particles.
nanotechnology is very expensive
and developingit can cost you a lot of money. It is also pretty
difficult tomanufacture
, which is probably why products made withnanotechnology are more expensive.
Wat is nanoeectronics?
Modern electronics technology is characterized by its
emphasis on miniaturization. Where remarkabletechnological progress has come from reductions in thesize of transistors, thereby increasing the number of 
transistors possible per chip.
With more transistors per chip, designers are able to createmore sophisticated integrated circuits (ICs)
Using nanotechnology in electronics results
which deals with the electronic devicesthat has length scales of approximately 1 to 100nanometers
In the age of microelectronics, the
active zone,
e.g., the channel length of a field effect transistor or the
thickness of a gate dielectric is derived from the size of several
. Using nanotechnology typical geometricaldimension of an electronic device is the nm.
