It is also difficult to imagine how small nanotechnology is. A nanometer is one billion meters, or 1 nanometer = 10-9 meters. Examples are:
- There are 25,400,000 nanometers in one inch.
- One sheet of paper is roughly 100,000 nanometers thick.
Nanoscience and nanotechnology have the ability to see and control atoms and molecules. Everything on the earth is made from atoms- whether it is food that we eat, which we wear, buildings and home our body etc. But it is impossible to see the atom with the help of eyes. Even the microscope cannot be seen as well.
The microscope required to see things in nanoscale was invented almost 30 years ago. Nanotechnology was also born with a scanning tunnelling microscope (STM) and atomic force microscope (AFM).
Manure can be made from nanotechnology so that crop production can be increased. Nanotechnology is being used in our computers and electronic devices very long, for example, silicon is used to create computer circuits and processors, which is a semiconductor.
In the coming time, this technology will also be used in the bulb, due to which electricity consumption will be less and light will be more. This will create such a microscopic drug, which can identify one of the millions of cancer cells and treat it separately.
