The nanotechnological revolution will be as pervasive as the first industrial revolution, for it also introduces concepts and techniques that will influence virtually all aspects of technology and manufacture. Nanotechnology is concerned with the design and manufacture of components with submicrometre dimensions, of larger components with submicrometre tolerances or surface finishes, and of machines with submicrometre precision of positioning or motion. The achievement of ultra-high precision in machining and the manufacture of extremely small devices opens up prospects as diverse and futuristic as massive computing power, medical diagnostic and therapeutic devices inside the bloodstream, global personal communications, still smaller and higher resolution optical devices and high economy, low cost automobiles.
