Nanotechnology is one emerging technology that is too small to ignore. Nanotechnology resides in that world where particles, crystal structures and components have dimensions of 100 nm or less. One popular definition defines the technology as the examination, manipulation, transformation, production and control of matter, energy and information at the nanometer-scale using precise individual atom processes instead of traditional chemical and biological mass reaction.
