size of six carbon atoms or less than one water molecule almost too small to imagine (Williams & Adams). Nano technology is the science of interacting with atoms and molecules to modify the way they behave; for example by chemical creating Ferro fluids or liquid magnets the exhibit strange behavior due to external magnetic fields. Or by fabricating Nano scale semiconductor crystals known as quantum dots which are sometimes called artificial atoms that glow like Christmas lights. All of this occurs by waving the alchemist wand of the very fine particles of golden solution to modify their shape and size effecting dramatic color changes from yellow to deep blue to red all depending on the size of the Nano particles being utilized.

Scientists have been modifying materials for decades. In fact nanotechnology has been in existence since the early Roman times. They used gold and silver Nano particles to make really intriguing color combinations in glass. It is also about the ...

people may not look to find Nano technology is in the manufactured world of society. Nanotechnology has aided the advancement in apparel as well. Chemical engineers have used nanotechnology to improve the strength and durability of cloths through structures called nanowhiskers. The purpose these Nano hair-like structures serve is to make liquid roll right off the cloths of the user. To put this matter in perspective, just imagine a peach and how the fuzzy outside layer of it help water form into beads and roll right of its' surface. Each synesthetic nanowhisker measures 10 nanometers long. Athletic socks also contain nanotechnology. Nike has been known to use nanometer silver particles ...
