Using nanoparticles as “atoms” and DNA as “bonds,” Chad Mirkin, the director of Northwestern University’s International Institute for Nanotechnology, is constructing his very own periodic table. So far Mirkin has built more than 200 distinct crystal structures with 17 different particle arrangements.

Nanotechnology has made atoms and bonds developed by artificial means probable. Chad Mirtin, director of Northwestern University’s International Institute for Nanotechnology, is rewriting the entire periodic table. As yet he has built more than 200 distinct crystal structures with 17 different particle arrangements.

Breakthrough: First Signals from Nanowire Implants in Living Brain

Breakthrough: First Signals from Nanowire Implants in Living Brain | The Future of Miniaturisation and nanotechnology | Scoop.it
Swedish researchers can now read signals from ultrathin electrodes implanted in a living brain. If supported by funds from President Obama’s brain study, the nanotechnology may lead to major developments in treating neural conditions.

Tracking nano technology's environmental risks a tough task

Tracking nano technology's environmental risks a tough task | The Future of Miniaturisation and nanotechnology | Scoop.it

"The most common way for nanoparticles to enter the environment is when they're washed down the drain, Diamond said. For example, the nano silver in socks, and the nano titanium in sunscreen or cosmetics ends up in sewage treatment plants. Diamond said it appears most of those particles are trapped in the sludge that remains after wastewater is treated. In that scenario, we would be more concerned about the application of sludge from wastewater treatment plants on crop lands which is a prevalent activity in the United States," he said. In Minnesota about 46,000 tons of dried sewage sludge from wastewater treatment plants were spread on about 16,000 acres of farmland last year before farmers planted corn or soybeans. According to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, 91,000 tons are incinerated and 20,000 tons are put in landfills. There's no easy way to test that sludge for nanoparticles."

With much progress being made in nanotechnology, the future of computers has two directions: nanotechnology and cells. Nanotechnology is the engineering of a system at the molecular scale. These processes are either “bottom-up” or “top-down”.

“Bottom –up” is the construction at the atomic level one atom at a time while “top-down” is using precise tools to achieve nanotechnological scales. Nanocomputing will give rise to four possible types of computers: electronic nanocomputers, biochemical and chemical nanocomputers, mechanical nanocomputers, and quantum nanocomputers. Nanotechnology allows for much smaller devices to be built without wasting space because it is built one atom at a time. For instance, silicon transmitters will be based on carbon nanofibers which are faster, smaller, and consumes less energy.

This article written by Ashley Tucker talks about future applications of nanotechnology and the impact its going to cause. The article points to the positive aspects of nanotechnology. It says nanotechnology will assist humans create more advance technologies that are faster, smaller and more compact than ever. The author predicts that nanotechnology will be used in four major fields that embody electronic nanocomputers, biochemical and chemical nanocomputers, mechanical nanocomputers, and quantum nanocomputers. These predictions are likely to occur within the next 10-15 as the technology gradually becoming more complex. This article is a reliable source which is comprised from different scholars that specify in nanotechnology.
