THE BASICS OF NANOSCIENCES AND TECHNOLOGY

By: Dr. Sara Qaisar, Symposium Secretary, P.O. Box 503, Rawalpindi, Pakistan

Current knowledge of science at the nanometer scale is derived from many disciplines, originating with the atomic and molecular concepts in chemistry and physics, and then incorporating molecular life sciences, medicine and engineering. The observation and understanding of atomic and molecular behavior from first principles was followed by the increasing ability to control and selectively modify
properties of ever smaller pieces of matter in a functional way.

Matter such as gases, liquids, and solids can exhibit unusual physical, chemical, and biological properties at the nanoscale, differing in important ways from the properties of bulk materials and single atoms or molecules. Some nanostructured materials are stronger or have different magnetic properties compared to other forms or sizes or the same material. Others are better at conducting heat or electricity. They may become more chemically reactive or reflect light better or change color as their size or structure is altered.
