Nanotechnology is defined as: the application of scientific knowledge to manipulate and control matter at the Nano scale level to make use of size and structure dependent properties and phenomena distinct from those associated with individual atoms or molecules or with bulk materials.
  The Nano scale is the size range from approximately 1nm to 100nm.
Nanotechnology exhibits a strong degree of convergence with many other disciplines, such as the information and communications technologies (ICT) industry.
