1 Science Saturday --- October 1, 2005

2 Nanotechnology Exciting new science and technology for the 21st century IBM chipUMass LogoTI mirror array

3 Nanotechnology Is a broad, interdisciplinary topic involving physics, chemistry, biology and engineering It has potential impact in electronics, medicine, materials, and a wide variety of application areas.

4 How small are nanostructures? Single Hair Width = 0.1 mm = 100 micrometers = 100,000 nanometers ! 1 nanometer = one billionth (10 -9 ) meter

5 Smaller still Hair. Red blood cell 6,000 nanometers DNA 3 nanometers

6 How do we make nanostructures? How do we see nanostructures?

7 First, how do we make nanostructures? Lithography Self-assembly

8 Lithography Mark Tuominen Mark Tuominen Mark Tuominen
