Nanoscience and Nanotechnology are emerging disciplines that seek to understand the nanoscale processes that govern a material's behavior. While the bulk properties are well understood the properties of nanostructured materials can differ considerably from them. As devices get smaller and smaller the knowledge of these properties becomes more important. This new direction of science is rather multi-disciplinary, spanning physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, and materials science, as well as many other fields.
