is the study of controlling of matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Generally nanotechnology deals with structures sized between 1 to 100 nanometer in at least one dimension. The science of nanotechnology involves developing materials and manipulatively engineering materials at the nanoscale for devices within that size.
Nanotechnology may be able to create many new materials and devices with a vast range of applications, such as in medicine, electronics, bio-materials and energy production.
In the documentary video below, Stephen Fry narrates the strange new world of Nanoscience.
