ナノテクノロジー Nanotechnology

用語「ナノ」は、一般に、原子、分子、および超分子スケールでの物質の操作として定義されますが、ナノテクノロジーのより正確な定義は、おそらく寸法1〜100ナノメートルの大きさを有する少なくとも一つの物質の操作といえましょう。したがって、ナノテクノロジーは、表面科学、有機化学、分子生物学、半導体物理学とマイクロ加工など、非常に幅広く多様な技術と科学の分野で研究開発されています。

 

The associated applications of such nano-technological developments are equally as diverse, and include extensions of conventional device physics to completely new approaches based upon molecular self-assembly, from developing new materials with dimensions on the nanoscale to direct control of matter on the atomic scale.

Shelston IP had a number of professionals on staff who have expertise in fields of science and technology where developments in nanotechnology are important.  For example, we have drafted patent applications for a Cooperative Research Centre relating to preparation of nanoscale zero-valent metals which are suitable for a wide variety of applications, but in particular to the remediation of water contaminated with organic contaminants.
