Definition of nanoscience in English:



  • The study of objects, phenomena, etc., on the nanometer scale.

    ‘in nanoscience, experimental and theoretical research advance side by side’
    • ‘part of the magic of nanoscience is that on the scale of a billionth of a meter, matter and materials behave in ways that are not yet known’
    • ‘Without nanoscience, there would be no nanotechnology.’
    • ‘The future of miniaturized electronics may lie in methods that combine chemistry with nanoscience, say the scientists.’
    • ‘The fund targets areas such as genomics, biotechnology, nanotechnology and nanoscience and is open to all public and private entities.’
    • ‘In nanoscience objects are measured in nanometres, 1 billionth of a metre.’
    • ‘In a sense, he noted, silicon chips have become nanotechnology, since they include features smaller than 100 nanometers, a popular measure for what constitutes nanoscience.’
    • ‘"Our research is leading to new insights in the field of soft-matter physics and nanoscience," Mueller told Reactive Reports.’
    • ‘The emerging fields of nanoscience and nanoengineering are leading to an unprecedented understanding of and control over the fundamental building blocks of all physical things.’
    • ‘Nanoscience provides not only new approaches to basic questions about the interaction of hydrogen with materials, but also the power to synthesize materials with custom-designed architectures.’
    • ‘Their results are published online by Small, a new journal dedicated to breakthroughs in nanoscience and engineering.’
    • ‘We have witnessed the sequencing of the human genome, the development of new tools for mapping neuronal connections, the increasing resolution of imaging technologies, and the explosion of nanoscience.’
