Energy Applications of Nanotechnology:
Nanotechnology is being used in several applications to improve the efficiency of energy generation or develop new methods to generate energy.Over the past few decades, the fields of science and engineering have been seeking to develop new and improved types of energy technologies that have the capability of improving life all over the world. In order to make the next leap forward from the current generation of technology, scientists and engineers have been developing energy applications of nanotechnology. Nanotechnology, a new field in science, is any technology that contains components smaller than 100 nanometers. For scale, a single virus particle is about 100 nanometers in width.

Industrial Applications of Nanotechnology:
Nanotechnology describes the characterization, fabrication and manipulation of structures, devices or materials that have one or more dimensions that are smaller than 100 nanometers. This area has established itself as a key enabling technology for a wide range of applications, thus becoming a top priority for science and technology policy development, being already used in hundreds of products among the industrial sector, namely, electronic, healthcare, chemical, cosmetics, composites and energy. Despite the development in this area, there are some obstacles to a greater impact of nanotechnology in industry. The lack of information concerning this scientific area, the possibility of adverse impacts of nanotechnology on the environment, human health, safety and sustainability, are still a challenge.

Molecular Nanotechnology:
Molecular nanotechnology describes engineered nanosystems (nanoscale machines) operating on the molecular scale. It is especially associated with the molecular assembler, a machine that can produce a desired structure or device atom-by-atom using the principles of mechanosynthesis- mechanically guided chemical synthesis- is fundamental to molecular manufacturing. It is a branch of engineering that deals with the design and manufacture of extremely small devices, that is, nanosystems or devices, built at the molecular level of matter. The proposed application of Molecular Nanotechnology is the ability to design and engineering material at nanoscale level, encompassing a wide variety of possible commercial applications. The projected applications of Molecular Nanotechnology include: Smart materials and Nanosensors (material engineered and designed at nanometer scale for a specific task), Replicating nanorobots, Medical nanorobots and Phased-array optics. Nanotechnology will replace our entire manufacturing base with a new, radically more precise, radically less expensive, and radically more flexible way of making products.

Nano Engineering:
Nanoengineering is the manipulation of materials and processes at the nanoscale—about 1-100 nanometers. With so many advances over the last decade, nanotechnology has become the new frontier of engineering, creating endless possibilities for manufacturing, microfluidics, robotics, biomedicine, energy, heat transfer and storage, nanomaterials, and computational modeling. Nanoengineering is also one of the most interdisciplinary of the sciences, requiring knowledge of mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, electrical engineering, biology, physics, photonics, and materials science.

Popular research fields include nanoscale energy transport, conversion, and storage, nano and micro electromechanical systems, nanomaterials, and alternative energy systems, including solar photovoltaic devices. Chemically modified nanomaterials are having huge impacts on biochemical sensing and human health. Carbon-based nanomaterials continue to evolve and are known for high strength, conductivity, and light weight.
Nano Medicine:
Nanomedicine is the application of nanotechnology to achieve innovation in healthcare. It uses the properties developed by a material at its nanometric scale 10-9 m which often differ in terms of physics, chemistry or biology from the same material at a bigger scale.

Moreover, the nanometric size is also the scale of many biological mechanisms in the human body allowing nanoparticles and nanomaterials to potentially cross natural barriers to access new sites of delivery and to interact with DNA or small proteins at different levels, in blood or within organs, tissues or cells.
At the nano-scale, the surface-to-volume ratio is such that the surface properties are becoming an intrinsic parameter of the potential actions of a particle or material. Coating of the particles and functionalization of their surfaces (even on multiple levels) are in this way extremely common to increase the biocompatibility of the particle and its circulation time in the blood, as well as to ensure a highly selective binding to the desired target. Nanomedicine has the potential to enable early detection and prevention and to drastically improve diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of many diseases including cancer but not only. Overall, Nanomedicine has nowadays hundreds of products under clinical trials, covering all major diseases including cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, musculoskeletal and inflammatory. Enabling technologies in all healthcare areas, Nanomedicine is already accounting for approximatively 80 marketed products, ranging from nano-delivery and pharmaceutical to medical imaging, diagnostics and biomaterials.
Nanoelectronics:
Nanoelectronics is based on the application of nanotechnology in the field of electronics and electronic components. Although the term Nanoelectronics may generally mean all the electronic components, special attention is given in the case of transistors. These transistors have a size lesser than 100 nanometres. Visibly, they are very small that separate studies have to be made for knowing the quantum mechanical properties and inter-atomic design. As a result, though the transistors appear in the nanometre range, they are designed through nanotechnology. Their design is also very much different from the traditional transistors and usually falls in the category of one-dimensional nanotubes/nanowires, hybrid molecular electronics, or advanced molecular electronics.

Nanomechanics has emerged on the crossroads of classical mechanics, solid-state physics, statistical mechanics, materials science, quantum chemistry and biology. As an area of nanoscience, nanomechanics provides a scientific foundation of nanotechnology.

The Smaller the size the larger are the specific surface area and energy efficiency. This is the prime concept behind all micro or nanotechnology devices. Even though the nanobots have not yet been deployed in any commercial application with currently available science and technology; the ongoing intensity of research & development work tends to a brighter future where we expect number of miracles with such tiny nanomachines.

Quantum Computing:
We experience the benefits of classical computing every day. However, there are challenges that today’s systems will never be able to solve. For problems above a certain size and complexity, we don’t have enough computational power on Earth to tackle them.
To stand a chance at solving some of these problems, we need a new kind of computing. Universal quantum computers leverage the quantum mechanical phenomena of superposition and entanglement to create states that scale exponentially with number of qubits, or quantum bits.

All computing systems rely on a fundamental ability to store and manipulate information. Current computers manipulate individual bits, which store information as binary 0 and 1 states. Quantum computers leverage quantum mechanical phenomena to manipulate information. To do this, they rely on quantum bits, or qubits.
Nanomaterials:
Nanotechnologies make use of very small objects or artefacts. Nanomaterials are an increasingly important product of nanotechnologies. They contain nanoparticles, smaller than 100 nanometres in at least one dimension.
Nanomaterials are coming into use in healthcare, electronics, cosmetics and other areas. Their physical and chemical properties often differ from those of bulk materials, so they call for specialised risk assessment. This needs to cover health risks to workers and consumers, and potential risks to the environment.This is currently done on a case by case basis, but risk assessment methods need to be kept up to date as the use of nanomaterials expands, especially as they find their way into consumer products.

A large proportion of work focuses on materials that can stimulate beneficial biological responses from the body, such as the stimulation of tissue repair.

Tissue engineering has the potential to achieve this by combining materials design and engineering with cell therapy. Biomaterials can provide physical supports for engineered tissues and powerful topographical and chemical cues to guide cells. Biomaterials engineering involves synthesis, processing, and characterisation of novel materials, including polymers, proteins, glasses, cements, composites and hybrids. Introducing nanoscale cues such as nanotopography or nanoparticles as therapeutic agents provide an exciting approach to modulate cell behaviour. In order to probe the cell-material interface, by pioneering new analytical and non-invasive techniques such as high resolution electron microscopy and live cell bio-Raman micro-spectroscopy.

Green Nanotechnology:
Nanotechnology is an emerging field. It is an interdisciplinary science whose potential has been widely touted for well over a decade. Despite significant private and public investment, progress moving nanomaterials from the laboratory to industrial production has been slow and difficult. Two challenges that have slowed development have been the poor understanding of the new hazards introduced by nanotechnology and lack of appropriate policies to manage any new risks. Scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs, however, continue to move forward, grappling with challenges that range from the technical to the regulatory and everywhere in between. Just as the concepts of nanoscale invention have required new insights from scientists, they are also demanding new approaches to managing, producing, funding and deploying novel technologies into the larger chemical sector. In this case, there is an unusual opportunity to use science, engineering and policy knowledge to design novel products that are benign as possible to human and environment health. Recognition of this opportunity has led to the development of the “green nanoscience” concept.
