Nanomaterials - An Introduction to Nanomaterials
This video clip details what nanotechnology is from a fundamental understanding point of view. It addresses the fact that nano-sized materials behave differently to their bulk analogies. Reasons for the different behaviour of nanomaterials are outlined.
The fact that the properties of nanomaterials can be controlled has lead to predictions that nanotechnology will lead to faster computer chips, tiny medical devices and new filters for cleaning water.
The discussion moves from nanomaterials that have been inadvertantly been used in the past to the nanomachines that will be used in the future.
