Brief History of Nanorevolution

At the turn of twenty-first century, we entered nanoworld. These days, if you try to run a simple Web search with the keyword nano, thousands and thousands of references will come out nanoparticles, nanowires, nanostructures, nanocomposite materials, nanoprobe microscopy, nanoelectronics, nanotechnology, and so on. The list could be endless. When did this scientific nanorevolution actually happen Perhaps, it was in the mid-1980s, when scanning tunneling microscopy was invented. Specialists in...
