>>NANOtechnology, a fairly new field in high tech, is based on the ability to use atoms, molecules, or any other very small unit of matter (one NANOmeter is one one-millionth of a millimeter) to create materials with superior qualities. Prologue explains it in colorful language: “In contrast to current production methods, which are based on top-down processes, NANOtechnology uses a bottom-up approach to facilitate the use of the smallest building blocks, such as atoms and molecules, and to identify them precisely. This helps create structures with new desirable characteristics.”

If we let our imagination run wild, in the distant future, companies using NANOtechnology will be able to produce things like clothing that cleans itself automatically, light-weight army uniforms that protect soldiers against bullets, paper-thin batteries, and thin computers. “All sorts of science fiction tales abound in NANOtechnology,” Olier says. “Our goal is to separate the science fiction from the products. Sub-sectors of interest to us include radio frequency identification (RFID) technology based on NANOtechnology, alternative energy, displays for mobile screens (currently a focus of interest in NANOtechnology), and various sources of light.” <<
