1. Introduction
Nanotechnology. To begin with a lecture “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom” by the physicist Richard Feynman at an American Physical Society Meeting at Caltech on 29 Dec 19591, the development of the Nano-technology was first introduced to our world. The Nanotech is the combination of the matter on an atomic and molecular scale and it is usually with at least one dimension sized from 1 to 100 nanometers, which one nanometer is one billionth of a meter. With a verity of the possible application, nano -technology is the one of the key technology development nowadays. Until scanning tunneling microscope2 was introduced by Gerd Binning and Heinrich Rohrer, the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1986, the first instrument for imaging surfaces at the atomic level for the afterward development of the Nanotechnology.
Two main approaches are used in nanotechnology. In the "bottom-up" approach, materials and devices are built from molecular components, which assemble themselves chemically by principles of molecular recognition. In the "top-down" approach, nano-objects are constructed from larger entities without atomic-level control3. U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative has described four generations of nanotechnology development4, namely Passive Nanostructures, Active Nanostructures, System of Nanosystems and Molecular Nanosystems.
There are verity applications on the nanotechnology and, in this report, it is only concerned on the nanotechnology on the electronic communication and medical, including introduction on the...
