Nanotechnology is related to those areas of science and engineering where phenomena that take place at dimensions in the nanometre scale which are used in the field of design, characterization, production and application of materials, structures, devices and systems.
Nanotechnology can occur in almost any area of science and engineering as It is pertinent to biotechnologists, physicists, electrical engineers, mechanical engineers or materials scientists. Nanomechanics is a branch of the nano sciences which deals with the mechanical properties of the materials such as Elasticity, Thermal, Kinetics which are of physical system at a nano meter scale.
Nanomechanics brings science and applications together on nanoscale and nano structured materials, with emphasis on mechanics, processing, characterization, design, modeling, and applications of materials containing true nano size dimensions or nano structures that describes novel or enhanced properties or functions that are based on tailored nano structures.
Nanomechanics came into existence on the crossroad of solid-state physics, statistical mechanics, materials science, and quantum chemistry. Often, nano mechanics is viewed as a branch of nanotechnology, that is an applied area with a focus on the mechanical properties of engineered nano structures and nano systems. Nanophotonics or Nano-optics is the study of light and its behavior in the nanoscale. It mainly deals with optics, optical engineering, electrical engineering, and nanotechnology.
Nanophotonics mainly focus on the fabrication and application of nano structures that facilitate the generation, propagation, manipulation, and detection of light from the infrared to the ultraviolet regimes.
The term "nano-optics", just like the term "optics", usually refers to situations involving ultraviolet, visible, and near-infrared light free-space wavelengths from to nano meters. Normal optical components, like lenses and microscopes, generally cannot normally focus light to nano meter deep sub wavelength scales, because of the diffraction limit Rayleigh criterion. It is possible to squeeze light into a nano meter scale using other techniques like, for example, surface plasmons, localized surface plasmons around nanoscale metal objects.
The scope of Nanophotonics extends to theory, modeling and simulation, experimentation, instrumentation, and application.
Nanosatellites are the satellites refers to an artificial satellite which have the wet mass of 1 to 10 kg. Designs and proposed designs of these types may be launched individually, or they may have multiple nanosatellites working together or in formation, in which case, sometimes the term "satellite swarm" or "fractionated spacecraft" may be applied.
With the emergence of the technological advances of miniaturization and increased capital to support private spaceflight initiatives in the s, several start ups have been formed to pursue opportunities with developing a variety of small-payload Nanosatellite Launch Vehicle NLV technologies. Nanorobotics is defined as the technology of creating machines or robots to the closest scale of a nanometre meters. Nanorobots may function at the atomic or molecular level to build devices, machines, or circuits, this process is known as molecular manufacturing.
Nanorobots might also capable of producing copies of there own to replace worn-out units in the system and this process is called Self-Replication. Nanorobots are of special interest to researchers in the medical industry. This has given rise to the field of nanomedicine. It is estimated that a squadron of nanorobots may serve as antibodies or antiviral agents in the patients body with a strike balance of immune systems, or in diseases that do not give response to the conventional measures. Nanoscale phenomenon is increasingly evident in conventional power generation plants.
Nanotechnology-based innovation is being credited with improvements in efficiency and life-spans of existing technologies, as well as the introduction of new and disruptive power-generating components. Nanotechnologies provide essential improvements potentials for the development of the conventional energy resources fossil fuels and nuclear fuels and the renewable energy resources geothermal, wind, water etc. Nanotechnology provides the multitude of approaches to energy saving examples are the reduction of the fuel consumption in automobiles through lightweight construction materials on basis of nanocomposites, the optimization in fuel combustion through increasing the wear.
The utilization of nanotechnology for the enhancement of the electrical energy stores like batteries and super capacitors turns out to be downright promising. Due to the high cell voltage and the outstanding energy and power density, the lithium-ion technology is regarded as the most promising variant for energy storage. Nanotechnology can improve the capacity and life period of the lithium-ion battery.
