Nanotechnology

Monday, 09 September, 2002

QinetiQ and BOC are developing a production facility to exploit the potential of nanotechnology. This involves manipulation of atoms and molecules to achieve miniaturisation of products - such as computers. It also has the potential to provide more sensitive medical instruments to achieve faster and more accurate diagnostic techniques.

Nanotechnology has potential uses in areas such as information technology and biotechnology. Applications may include drug-delivery systems, anticorrosion coatings, cosmetics and ultraviolet protection gels, tailoring the viscosity and thermal expansion properties of lubricants, and composite materials that are lighter, stronger and thinner.
