Importance of Nanotechnology


What is Nanotechnology?

The study of manipulating materials on molecular as well as atomic scales is known as Nanotechnology. Nanotechnology deals with matters that are sized in between 1 to 100 nanometers. Today, this field of advanced study has significant impact on all areas of the society and industry. Finer points on how and why nanotechnology has become so much important for us today are given in details below.

Where is it applied?

The wide array of applications in nanotechnology has come to show one and all how much importance nanotechnology has in our lives today. May it be engineering, research or medicine, or even construction, nanotechnology and its applications play a vital role everywhere. This is one of the reasons why many people opt to study this course.

It can be said that Nanotechnology can be applied in almost all areas. Nanotechnology Applications are available in fields such as:

  • Batteries
  • Better Air Quality
  • Chemical Sensors
  • Cleaner Water
  • Electronics
  • Fabric
  • Food
  • Fuel Cells
  • Fuels
  • Medicine
  • Solar Cells
  • Space
  • Sporting Goods

Career opportunities available in this field

The career opportunities existing in nanotechnology are quite great. The applications of nanotechnology range from complex medical diagnostic devices to building better batteries and cosmetics etc. It is also applied in the field of aircraft manufacturing and research.

Because of these many applications available in Nanotechnology, the job opportunities are not at all scarce. Job opportunities are at hand in areas such as:

  • Auto and aerospace industries
  • Biotechnology
  • Electronics/semiconductor industry
