What is Nano Scale Technology?

Nano refers to the metric prefix for 10^-9 and means one-billionth of something. Nanoscience is the study of structures made small enough to take on new properties. For example, nano-particles of gold appear red in color and melt at significantly lower temperatures than normal gold slabs (~300 °C as compared to 1064 °C)[1]
