  3. 3. INTRODUCTION <ul><li>Nanotechnology refers to a field of applied science that deals with structures devices100 nanometers or smaller in size. To give you an idea of how small that is, it would take eight hundred 100 nanometer particles side by side to match the width of a human hair. </li></ul><ul><li>1 nanometer (nm) =10 -9 meter (m). </li></ul>NANOTECHNOLOGY
  4. 4. Origin And The History Of The Nanotechnology <ul><li>The first use of the concepts in 'nano-technology' (but predating use of that name) was in &quot;There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom,&quot; a talk given by physicist Richard Feynman at an American Physical Society meeting at Caltech on December 29, 1959 . </li></ul><ul><li>The term &quot;nanotechnology&quot; was defined by Tokyo Science University Professor Norio Taniguchi in1974. </li></ul>Cont...

  5. 5. <ul><li>Dr. K. Eric Drexler promoted the technological significance of nano-scale phenomena and devices through speeches and the books Engines of Creation:The Coming Era of Nanotechnology in 1986. </li></ul>NANOTECHNOLOGY
  6. 6. NANOTUBE <ul><li>A nanotube is a nanometer-scale tube-like structure. It may refer to: </li></ul><ul><li>Carbon nanotube </li></ul><ul><li>Inorganic nanotube </li></ul><ul><li>DNA nanotube </li></ul><ul><li>Membrane nanotube </li></ul>NANOTECHNOLOGY
  9. 9. DNA NANOTUBE <ul><li>The first layered nanotubes composed almost entirely of DNA have been created. Layers of DNA in the nanotubes are held together by hybridization of a series of DNA strands. The nanotubes fall apart when heated, releasing single-stranded DNA. </li></ul>NANOTECHNOLOGY

  11. 11. VISION <ul><li>There are two types of approaches used in nanotechnology: </li></ul><ul><li>TOP DOWN </li></ul><ul><li>BOTTOM UP </li></ul>Cont... NANOTECHNOLOGY
  12. 12. TOP-DOWN APPROACH <ul><li>These seek to create smaller devices by using larger ones to direct their assembly. </li></ul><ul><li>Many technologies descended from conventional solid-state silicon methods for fabricating microprocessors are now capable of creating features smaller than 100 nm, falling under the definition of nanotechnology. Giant magnetoresistance -based hard drives already on the market fit this description, as do atomic layer deposition (ALD) techniques. </li></ul><ul><li>Solid-state techniques can also be used to create devices known as nanoelectromechanical systems or NEMS, which are related to microelectromechanical systems or MEMS. </li></ul><ul><li>Atomic force microscope tips can be used as a nanoscale &quot;write head&quot; to deposit a chemical upon a surface in a desired pattern in a process called dip pen nanolithography . This fits into the larger subfield of nanolithography. </li></ul>Cont... NANOTECHNOLOGY
  13. 13. BOTTOM-UP APPROACH <ul><li>These seek to arrange smaller components into more complex assemblies. </li></ul><ul><li>DNA nanotechnology utilizes the specificity of Watson-Crick basepairing to construct well-defined structures out of DNA and other nucleic acids . </li></ul><ul><li>Approaches from the field of &quot;classical&quot; chemical synthesis also aim at designing molecules with well-defined shape (e.g. bis-peptides. </li></ul><ul><li>More generally, molecular self-assembly seeks to use concepts of supramolecular chemistry, and molecular recognition in particular, to cause single-molecule components to automatically arrange themselves into some useful conformation. </li></ul>NANOTECHNOLOGY
