  • Thare have been similar dissussions on wether thermodynamics (equilibrium theory) can be applied to small systems of finite size (such as nanostructures), because they are in principle "metastable" (relative to bulk).

  • 'nanostructures' made of gold or silver, they can make an early prototype device which, once optimised, should exhibit a highly sensitive ability to detect particular chemicals in the immediate surroundings.


  • “Beautiful pictures of nanostructures capture the imagination, but if a picture is worth 1,000 words, then a table, filled with accurate atomic coordinates, is worth 1,000 pictures,” says Simon Billinge, who studies what he has dubbed the nanostructure problem at Columbia University and Brookhaven National Laboratory.

  • Computational advances will also make it possible to design radiation-resistant materials literally atom by atom and, perhaps, specially tailored nanostructures that could store long-lived nuclear waste safely for tens of thousands of years.

  • Dwyer has shown that these nanostructures will efficiently self-assemble, and when different light-sensitive molecules are added to the mixture, the waffles exhibit unique and “programmable” properties that can be readily tapped.

  • Similarly, non-reflective materials have been improved by imitating the nanostructures found in the wings of cicada insects.

    Nanotechnology in everyday life

  • Many technologies in the modern world rely on nanostructures, often inspired by evolution in the natural world.
