Nanotechnology deals with the development and use of materials or devices in sizes ranging between 1 to 100 nanometers (nm). This range is known as the nanoscale. All materials that fall along this scale are known as either nanocrystals and nanomaterials.
The concept of nanotechnology was first introduced by American physicist Richard P. Feynman (1918-1988). Known for his contributions in quantum electrodynamics, he did this. Although never coining the term “nanotechnology”, Dr. Feynman successfully predicted several aspects and advancements in the field, including the use of advanced microscopes used to view materials at extremely small sizes, as well as the development of new fabrication methods. Feynman also discussed the possibility of atom-by-atom assembly, or the building of structures from individual atoms precisely joined by chemical forces. The concept of a “universal assembler” was derived from such a possibility in which a robotic device at nanoscale dimensions that could assemble atoms to create molecules of a desired chemical compound. Carbon atoms, for example, could may in the future be manipulated to fabricate low-cost diamonds.
