The study of the performance of ultra-small structures, materials, and devices, usu. usually 0.1 to 100 nm; also, the study of manipulating materials on an atomic or molecular scale. Nanoscience is sometimes used interchangably with Nanotechnology, which is the manipulation of matter on an atomic ...
(this question is a crosspost from theoretical physics.) I am using atomic force microscopy (AFM) for characterizing pores of the size of nanometers for application in gas flow. For this, knowing ...
Quantum dots are quantum systems that are confined by definition on the nano scale. Why didn't people study similar systems on a much smaller scale, something as small as the dimension of the nucleus? ...
I have some questions about Nanotechnologies. I'm not physicist and my knowledges about the topic are limited by the "Engines of Creation" book by Eric Drexler. So I think that my questions are ...
In the last year there has been fuzz regarding metamaterials studied for the purpose of cloaking, and it seem to me they are somewhat glorified 2D waveguides, but in any case it seems a reasonable ...
Quoting this web site (which I haven't thoroughly verified for credibility yet): The material is graphene, also known as graphite, a naturally-occurring mineral that forms a one-atom-thick ...
I've been reading about nanotubes lately, and I keep seeing the $ (n,m) $ notation. How does this describe a nanotube's structure? How do I determine which is $n$ and which is $m$ ? I'm familiar with ...
What's the difference between something being labeled a "nano-particle" or it being called a "molecule"?
