Nanotechnology is defined as the study and use of structures between 1 nanometer and 100 nanometers in size. To give you an idea of how small that is, it would take 80,000 nanometer particles side by side to match the width of a human hair.

What is Nanotechnology?
Nanotechnology is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. This covered both current work and concepts that are more advanced. In the original sense, nanotechnology refers to the projected ability to construct item from the bottom up, using techniques and tools.

A nanoparticle is defined as the smallest unit that can still behave as a whole entity in terms of properties and transport. Mostly using nanoparticles are silicon nanoparticles,carbon nanoparticles, metal nanoparticles, gold nanoparticles.

Nanoparticles and its Applications
Nanoparticles and their applications, are essentially very small pieces of material that measure no more than an atom or two across. They are small enough that they can interact easily on the same level with microscopic pathogens such as bacteria or viruses. It is mainly used in water purification,Anti terrorism and security applications,some medical application like cancer treatment,making duplicated gold, cleaner safer and more comfortable transport,etc

In the medical world, nanotechnology is also seen as a boon since these can help with drugs. creating what is called smart drugs. These help cure people faster and without the side effects that other traditional drugs have. You will also find that the research of nanotechnology in medicine is now focusing on areas like tissue regeneration, bone repair, immunity and even cures for such ailments like cancer, diabetes, and other life threatening diseases.

Nanotechnology can also benefit the energy sector. The development of more effective energy-producing, energyenergyenergy-absorbing, and energy storage products in smaller and more efficient devices is possible with this technology. Such items like batteries, fuel cells, and solar cells can be built smaller but can be made to be more effective with this technology. Nanotechnology can actually revolutionize a lot of electronic products, procedures, and applications. The areas that benefit from the continued development of nanotechnology when it comes to electronic products include nano transistors, nano diodes, OLED, plasma displays, quantum computers, and many more

Presently, it is highly cost to implement nanotechnology can also bring about the crash of certain markets like values of diamonds,golds,etc . since people can now develop products at the molecular level, diamonds will lose its value since it can now be mass produced. Some scientist believe in future it may cause huge destruction to this earth.

Destruction to earth
Some scientist is in believe that nanobots & nanotechnology materials may absorb all the particles & nature in its way by multiplication binary fission reaction like binary fission in bacteria & viruses for reproduction. Some scientist is in believe that it may leads to complete earth destruction & the world may belongs to nanobots later and not for humans.

Nanotechnology helps to understand the world around us,and will provide inspiration and drive for many generations of scientists.thus the future generation is going to continue the fantastic voyage with nano technology in advanced level making life easier. Advantage or disadvantage is in our hand,we must used in right way for right thing for better life .
