Now we should understand how simple atoms & molecules come together and arrange themselves to form complex systems. scientists have practiced what can be called ³top-down science ´. This ³bottom-up´ approach deals with how complex systems are built from simple atomic-level constituents which has opened up new horizons of research in the era of Nanotechnology .such as living cells that make life possible on earth.com/fyp/ http://www.cc/ .final-yearprojects.Introduction For most of the 20th century. http://troubleshoot4free .nucleons and beyond.co. starting form the understanding of the basic interactions & elementary particles attempt is made to explain structure & properties of materials & all possible phenomena.nuclei.The goal has been to simplify our understanding of matter by breaking it into its basic building blocks ranging from atoms.

final-yearprojects.WHAT IS NANOTECHNOLOGY? Nanotechnology is molecular manufacturing one atom or molecule at a time with programmed nanoscopic robot arms. Nanotechnology utilizes well-understood chemical properties of atoms & molecules to construct devices that posses extraordinary properties .co. http://troubleshoot4free .cc/ . It is a very vast field and is the merger of all known technologies that we have today. Nanotechnology is an essential technology for designing.com/fyp/ http://www. fabricating and applying Nanometer-scale systems.

Nanotechnology was conceived in 1959.co. Dr Feynman explained that the principles of physics don¶t deny the possibility of manipulating things atom by atom .final-yearprojects.when Nobel Laureate physicist Richard P. Dr Feynman is therefore credited with being the first person to advance the possibility of molecular assembly.com/fyp/ http://www. http://troubleshoot4free .cc/ . Feynman gave a lecture titled ³Thereµs plenty of Room at the bottom´ and it outlined the theoretical concept of manipulating atoms to build molecules.

final-yearprojects. As per the observation of Gordon Moore the number of transistors being packed into integrated circuits doubled every year.cc/ . In fact since 1975 the number of transistors on a semiconductor chip has doubled every 18 months.com/fyp/ http://www. by 2020 it could have 5 billion. This dramatic advance in miniaturization has possible because of revolutionary research and developments in physics. A microprocessor today has approximately 40 million transistors. http://troubleshoot4free .NANODEVICES: Computers have been getting smaller faster and cheaper because of advances in silicon technology.co. material science and devices associated technologies.

The characteristics of nanotubes are as follows.final-yearprojects. Nanotubes have a special feature that they are about six times lighter & ten times stronger than steel.com/fyp/ http://www. http://troubleshoot4free . 3.cc/ . High current densities. 1. Emission of electrons at a relatively low voltage.co.NANOTUBES: Carbon nanotubes are an exotic variation of common graphite. A single nanotube with a natural junction where a straight section joined to a helical section is called single wall nanotube. Minimal power requirement. 2.
