Nanotech: In other fields
Nanotechnology is a branch of technology that manipulates the molecular structure of materials to change their inherent properties and create new materials with groundbreaking applications. This is the case for graphene, a modified carbon that is stiffer than steel, lighter than aluminum and almost transparent, and these nanoparticles are used in the electronics, energy, medical and defense sectors. Nanotechnology is a hot topic in research and development around the world, and nanomaterials are already present in hundreds of items, including sunscreens, cosmetics, fabrics and sports equipment. Drug delivery, biosensors and other therapeutic uses are all being developed using nanotechnology.
