Awareness

Nanotechnology is:

  • Using the properties that emerge for materials at a scale of one-billionth of a metre
  • as small particles as nanometre sized devices

Nanotechnology has:

  • Broad applications in performance materials, health, consumer products, water, information technology and energy
  • The potential to make things lighter, stronger, more efficient and more effective.
