Nanotechnology – a general term applied to a set of techniques and methods of forming various structures of nanometric size, i.e. measured as single atoms and particles.
Apart from biotechnology and solar power generation, nanotechnology is the fastest growing area of science. It’s also worth mentioning that all living creatures have been following “nanotechnology" for ages. Many structures existing inside the cells are some sort of micro machineries, the structure of such natural materials as wood, plant stems, bones or skin are items with the structure controlled at the level of single particles.
