Is a single “atomic”, “elements” to create high-tech stuff. Nanotechnology is based on a number of advanced science and technology as the foundation of modern science and technology, it is modern science (chaos physics, quantum mechanics, mesoscopic physics, molecular biology) and modern technology (computer technology, micro- Electronic And scanning tunneling microscopy, nuclear analytical techniques) combined with the product, nano science and technology in turn trigger a series of new scientific technologies such as nano-electronics, nano-materials science, nano-mechanical science. Nano Science and Technology, sometimes referred to as nano-technology, is to study the structure size from 0.1 to 100 nm in the range of materials properties and applications.
Nano is the English translation of nano is a unit of length, formerly known as nm is 10 -9 th power-meter (10 billionths of a meter is equivalent to 4-5 atomic string together that long. Nanostructures usually refers to the size of the tiny structure below 100 nm.
1981 scanning tunneling microscope was invented, gave birth to a length of 0.1 to 100 nanometers for the molecular world, its ultimate goal is to directly construct an atomic or molecular products with specific functions. Thus, nanotechnology actually is, single atoms, molecules range of substances.
Nanotechnology is a highly integrated cross-discipline research covering the broad field of modern science and technology. Nano Science and Technology include: nano-physics, nano-chemistry, nano-materials, nano-biology, nano electronics, nano-processing science, nano-mechanics. The seven relatively independent subjects of mutual penetration and nano materials, nano devices, nano-scale detection and characterization of the three fields of study. Preparation and study of nano-materials are the basis for nanotechnology. Among them, the nano-physics and nano-chemistry is the theoretical basis of nanotechnology, but nanoelectronics is the most important elements of nanotechnology.
General understanding, you can image as “a nano-objects on the table tennis on, like a table tennis on the earth.”
Nano-technology to attract more investment Recent years, with China‘s basic research on nanotechnology a high degree of importance, not only presented the “National Nanotechnology Program for the Development”, and will include a nanotechnology research and development of the major program. Through the implementation of the “863 plan”, “973 Plan”, Nano Materials and Nano-technology research results has been made more prominent, attracted international attention. National Centre for Nano Science and Technology, Key Laboratory of Nano-biotechnology research and development center and a number of nanotechnology has been established. Shanghai, Xi’an, and Dalian has also established a local nanotechnology R & D Promotion Center. China also was the first worldwide release in 2005 and came into effect a 7 nanometer technology and product standards, laid our standards in nanotechnology and the status of leader.
Learned over the years, the two industry giants Intel and AMD have been tried in nanotechnology and innovation challenges. According to the Intel Architecture Group (IAG), Vice President Doug? David Secretary told reporters that Intel will be in the first quarter of 2010, released 32-nm Westmere processor, the processor will support embedded applications. In addition, next year, a new generation of Pineview Atom processors will be released, this 45-nanometer processors also support embedded applications, which will further enhance the Atom platform flexibility and scalability. The AMD also announced devaluation of 40 nano-DX11 notebook cards. This can be seen only in 2010, nanotechnology will also focus on attracting business investment, great potential and broad prospects, will be able to solve most of the industrial problems. Although the emergence of nano-engineering
have some time, but its real development has benefited from a new set of processing technologies, including atomic force microscopy, nano-lithography and nano-Baptist document such as imprint lithography, which makes the manufacturing Nano-devices easier, so developers can develop a smaller, cheaper, higher performance devices.
