Nanotechnology, the ability to work at the atomic and molecular level, atom by atom to create materials and structures with new capabilities, will fundamentally change electronics, computers, medicine, biotechnology, and many other industries. The current research in this area is meant to explore the science of nanostructures and new materials, to develop the enabling technology for producing new classes of electronic and biological devices, and to educate the scientists and engineers who will carry this vision forward. This talk is about the prospects of Nanotechnology and the challenges in this emerging field. It is targeted to undergraduate students in Physics, Chemistry, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. The complexity of the topic would be minimal and its level would be elementary. It would span discussion on Carbon Nanotubes, Molecular Electronics, Nano-Electromechanical Systems, Ultrathin (1.7-7nm) oxides and nitrided oxides for CMOS applications and Noise Spectroscopy.
