<emphasis role="bold">INTRODUCTION TO NANOTECHNOLOGY</emphasis>by Alexander CouzisNanotechnology focuses on the fabrication of devices with atomic- or molecular-scale precision. Molecular nanotechnology is defined as the three-dimensional positional control of molecular structure to create materials and devices to molecular precision. Devices with minimum feature sizes less than 100 nanometres (nm) are considered to be products of nanotechnology. A nanometre (nm) is one billionth of a metre (10 −9 m), that is, about 1/80,000 of the diameter of a human hair, or 10 …
