Nanotechnology is the use of materials science involving matter at dimensions of roughly one to one hundred nanometers. Due to the advantages offered by this unique manipulation, nanotechnology is adopted in a variety of different industries such as chip fabrication, manufacturing, construction, healthcare, agriculture, military, and energy. The inherent nature of nanotechnology has led analysts to suggest that it may constitute a basis for long-term productivity and economic growth. This paper is an introduction to the use of nanotechnology in business.
