Excerpt
Excerpt: Nanotechnology is defined as the creation of functional materials, devices, and systems through the control of matter at a scale of 1?100 nanometers, as well as the exploitation of novel properties and phenomena developed at that scale. Although the word ?nanotechnology? is new, the processes are not. Photography and catalysis are examples of nanotechnology that were developed through the process of trial and error and that have been around for a while. Nature is the master of nanotechnology, transforming atoms of various elements into miniature building blocks and power plants that result in a living, functional person. And the photosynthetic machinery that harnesses solar power and converts it to chemical energy in plants is another prime example of natures nanotechnology capability.
