Nanoscale science and engineering

NanoscaleScience and Engineering


Nanoscale science and engineering

What is Nanoscale Science

and Engineering?

Engineering at the nanoscale is called Nanotechnology!


How small is a nanometer

How small is a nanometer?


Macro

MACRO

meter

centimeter

All these are still visible with your eyes.

millimeter


Micro

6-8 µm

micrometer

(One-millionth of a meter)

MICRO

Nanoscale objects are 1,000 times smaller!!!

These are smaller than you can see.


Nanoscale science and engineering

NANO

A nanometer is one billionthof a meter!!

DNA

2.5 nm

Viruses

3-50 nm

Atoms

<1 nm


Nanoscale science and engineering

Nanotechnology

The nanometer is extremelysmall.

At the nanometer scale, many materials behave differently.

We can use this new behavior to make newtechnologies.

Why do we care

Why Do We Care?

Nanotechnology can improve how we live!


Nanoscale science and engineering

60-100 nm

  • Silver nanoparticles are used to kill bacteria in:

  • Athletic apparel

  • Socks

  • Refrigerators

  • Storage containers

  • Washing machines

Gold nanoshells can target and destroy cancer cells
