Nanoscience ?!?

Nanoscience and Nanotechnology are emerging disciplines that seek to understand the nanoscale processes that govern a material’s behavior.

While the bulk properties are well understood, the properties of nano-structured materials can differ considerably from them. As devices get smaller and smaller, the knowledge of these properties becomes more important.

This new direction of science is rather multi-disciplinary, spanning physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, and materials science, as well as many other fields.
