Nanoscience is the study of matter at the scale of one-billionth of a metre. Drawing: Courtesy the US National Cancer Institute
Imagine gold that can cure cancer, a television screen that rolls up like a tube of paper, or material that is ten times stronger and lighter than steel. This is no reverie of alchemy; rather, it is a sample of what nanotechnology — one of the newest areas of scientific research — is striving to offer. Simply put, nanotechnology is a science that aims to manipulate particles of matter that are nearly 70 000 times smaller than a strand of hair, and promises a world of tantalising possibilities.
