A new wave of technological revolution is created by the change of nanotechnology, which is predicted to have a great impact in the future. By definition, nanoscience is the development of chemical and biological nanostructures. In my opinion, nanoscience is kind of a fundamental thesis, which could be based on a mathematical model to explore the small world in the size range from 1 to 100 nm and to discover new knowledge about how this world works. After discovering and understanding its characteristics, nano-engineers can apply those difficult or abstract theses to the real world. I wondered what is going to happen in nanotechnology, so I took this course. I know that both nanoscience and engineering are classified under the term nanotechnology. The basic understanding and engineering advances in nanoscience and nanotechnology have been certainly integrated into a wide variety of research and development work in the laboratory. Nanoscience and engineering are going to develop into real products for different purposes. Therefore, the connection between nano-science and engineering is a path to make the evolution of imaginative ideas come true.
This series of new technology involves manipulating matter on a small scale and is an important ability today. This capability enables the invention or design of new materials, new equipment, and novel applications. The basic understanding of nanoscience and advances in nanoengineering has been integrated into a wide variety of research and development work in the laboratory. These areas of study are also going to help develop real products for many other purposes. The ultimate goal is to learn how to organize nanostructures into the larger, more complex functional architecture called integrated nanotechnology.
In this course, I learned that nanoscience is not only based on different theses but is also widely developed in the real world. I think that nanotechnology will lead a new revolution in years to come. For example, car manufacturers have used nanotechnology in automobile design. By changing the structure of the material, nanoscience can improve the performance of products in the future. In this case, nano-engineering is mainly responsible for the performance-to-cost ratio, such as a lightweight, low cost and stronger structure. When the car gets lighter, the cost of fuel will decrease. It will lead the next generation to a better automotive field. Moreover, after using a new metal to design a car, the material could be used to develop a stronger and longer lasting product. Therefore, nanoengineering is an important field in today’s modern world.
