Sitemap 01 Nanotechnology
Nanotechnology will change the world, the pundits tell us, and people are racing to become a part of the new craze, launching web sites, special reports, companies, and products with the nano prefix. "> Bottom-up techniques build something from more basic materials. An example would be the building of an engine out of the component parts. In general there is less likely to be wastage with bottom-up approaches, but this is not necessary true."> An ever-growing class of designer macromolecules built using polymer chemistry. The white paper contains an introduction to the technology and a discussion of opportunities."> Cage-like carbon molecules that are relatives of the carbon nanotube (covered in separate white paper). Contains an introduction to the technology and a discussion of opportunities."> The white paper describes some of the recent research developments in fabricating nanodevices."> Single molecules have interesting and potentially useful electronic properties, and many researchers are pursuing a unique strategy to turn molecular systems into working circuits."> The current fabrication methods for quantum dots and their applications are described in this white paper."> This white paper is effectively about our ability to view and manipulate the world on the nanoscale."> Lithographic tools and techniques can be expected to contribute to nanotechnological development, especially in the area of nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) and for provision of the larger-scale supporting and connecting structures for other developments, such as molecular electronics and lab-on-a-chip systems. Different approaches will be briefly described in this white paper."> Nanotubes could have a significant impact on many different multi-billion-dollar industries, and in some cases have no peers. This report explains the different types of nanotubes (including non-carbon varieties) and their varying properties, production levels and costs, production methods for different types of carbon nanotube including pros and cons, coverage of all the latest research breakthroughs in production and application of nanotubes, including the implications, and discussion of opportunities for each type of nanotube, covering timescales and competitive technologies."> The first of third-party certified NanoCeram filters will become commercially available early in 2005."> The billions of dollars of government funding that has been going into academic establishments around the world is on the verge of releasing a flood of new technologies, some of which will find applications in the water industry. "> On Monday September 30, 2004, The Club of Amsterdam and Cientifica together hosted the first international conference on nanotechnology and water “NanoWater”, at the RAI Congress Center in Amsterdam. Nanotechnology and water, an unlikely combination? Not really. In fact most of the technology presented at the conference can be defined as a solution to the following assignment: construct a really fine-grained way to sieve water. ">
