He said 15 industrial sectors in Iran currently use nanotechnology
, adding that Iranian nano products have so far been exported to many countries, such as South Korea, Australia, China, Indonesia, Russia, Turkey, Malaysia, Canada, as well as European, African and Latin American countries.
On the cutting edge of science, nanotechnology
plays a critical role in biology, chemistry, engineering, medicine, and physics from building microprocessors and delivering anti-cancer drugs efficiently to making clothes more stain resistant and improving sunscreen absorption.
The concept of nanotechnology
was introduced in 1959 by Richard P Feynman, a Nobel winning physicist with the fundamental idea of employing machines to make even smaller machine tools until we reach the nano, or atomic, level.1 The nanotechnology
is that specific science which deals with manipulating matter measured in the billionths of meters or nanometers, roughly the size of 2 or 3 atoms.2 Nanotechnology
concerns a field of applied science and technology which deals with the control of matter on the molecular level in scales smaller than 1um, normally 1-100nm, and the construction of devices in that size range.3
The scope of this study is how Nano-IS can be built by key actors in developing countries for successful diffusion and further development of the Nanotechnology
. In fact, in the both public and private sectors, the nurturing of innovation through some policies establishment broadly emphasized on knowledge and technology transfer among multiple actors in innovation systems such as; individuals, universities, government agencies and industries.
has the potential to change the way we address some of the world's most critical development problems.
Nanotechnology/ What is nanotechnology
? It is the systematic application of scientific research at the nano level.
dealing with healthcare is called nanomedicine.
This number will continue to grow as promising new applications of nanotechnology
Further, though most of this research has been performed in the Unites States and Europe, other regions have highly active nanotechnology
research programs, including India, China, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
The college launched its cutting-edge nanotechnology
program in January 2013, offering nanotechnology
courses in collaboration with the Nanotechnology
Education, Employment, and Economic Development Initiative ([NE.sup.3]I), a partnership between Oakton; the Village of Skokie, Ill.; Forest City Enterprises, Inc., which rents space for nanotechnology
labs at Skokie's Illinois Science + Technology Park (IS+TP)--and the North Suburban Educational Region for Vocation Education (NSERVE), a career and technical education consortium consisting of nine high schools in Chicago's northern suburbs.
The interdisciplinary nature of nanotechnology
means achieving this aim is dependent on teaching and learning experiences that provide opportunities for integrating knowledge from all the disciplines of science and understanding science as a human endeavour.
