  • What is NanoTechnology?
  • Nanotechnology, introduced by Norio Taniguchi at Tokyo University in 1974, is a rapidly emerging technology based on the further sensitivity and reduction of existing technologies. In the future, this technology will probably also include building machines and mechanisms in terms of nanoscale size with the name Molecular Nanotechnology (MNT). Nanotechnology uses a measurement unit called nanometer (short form nm). Each measure is 1 billion nm. Each nm is only three to five atoms wide, which is about 40,000 times smaller than the average human hair thickness.


  • One aspect of nanotechnology is that super-small computers (in the size of a bacterium) or nano-sized desktop computers like billions of laptops can be trillions of times more powerful than today’s computers in terms of cube sugar.



  • The high potential of nanotechnology is to emerge as a result of the laws of quantum physics. At this stage and nano-scale quantum physics laws are enacted and allow for new applications in optics, electronics, magnetic storage, computation, catalyst and other fields.
  • Nanotechnology is often referred to as general-purpose technology. Because when it is realized, nanotechnology will have an important place in almost all sectors and all areas of society. We will be able to use better-made, longer-lasting, cleaner, safer and intelligent products at home, in communication, in envy, in transportation, in agriculture and in all aspects of the industry.
  • Think of a tibbian instrument that circulates in the human body and finds and destroys cancer cells without spreading; Or visualize material that is much lighter than steel but ten times stronger than steel.


  • Why should nanotechnology be used sensitively? Nanotechnology, like electricity or computers, will provide better opportunities at every stage of our lives. But as with every new technology, nanotechnology has a two-fold use, which means that even more powerful weapons and surveillance tools can be built through commercial use and military underground nanotechnology. That is why nanotechnology brings benefits to humans at the same time with some risks.






  • One of the important aspects of nanotechnology is not only better products, but also more sophisticated means of production.
  • Can a computer copy data files? Especially at a very low cost you can make as many copies as you want for free. Here, nanotechnology can make something as easy and cheap as copying the same files as it is on the same computer. So nanotechnology is called the next industrial revolution according to a lot.


  • Nanotechnology will not only allow many high-quality products to be manufactured at very low cost, but will also enable the production of new nano fabs at low cost and at the same high speed. The reason why nanotechnology is called a rapidly increasing technology is its ability to reproduce its own production tools.


  • Nanotechnology; Faster, lower cost and cleaner production system. The means of production will be foldable and reproducible so that within a few weeks several nano factories will produce billions of factories. It is a revolutionary, innovative, powerful and potentially very dangerous or useful technology.
  • How soon can all these developments take place?
  • The general estimate is that it can be between 20 and 30 years, or even later. But the recorded fast advances on optics, nano lithography, mechanical chemistry and 3D prototype technologies can shorten this time. What is important here is not only how soon such a development can be done but also how ready we are for this new technology.


  • Perhaps we can better perceive this when we ask ourselves some of the questions below.
  • Who will have this technology?
  • Will this be very limited or will anyone be able to access it?
  • What will he do to close the gap between the poor and the rich?
  • How will dangerous weapons be taken under control and prevented from passing into the hands of dangerous people? Although these questions have been raised most of the past 10 years, they still do not seem to have found much answers.
  • It is hard to say exactly when this technology will be passed on, which is partly because hidden military or industrial development programs are carried out outside of the knowledge of a normal citizen and with great confidentiality. We can not say for certain whether nanotechnology will be developed within the next five or ten years. But we have to be prepared for the whole scenario, not to waste prudence, but to follow nanotechnology and development closely.
