The magic of Nanotechnology

The magical atoms!

While at school, all of us studied about atoms and molecules. We were told these were really small physical constructs, and had almost magical properties at the nano level.

As we grew up, we read more about the "magic" that is possible at the atomic, or nano, level. Scientists the world over have tried to learn how to manipulate single atoms, to enable creation of magic drugs or machines that can cure seemingly incurable diseases.

Nanotechnology is the study of matter at the nano scale, and the immense possibilities that open up. As part of our training programme for UPSC IAS exam, I took a session on it, and here it is! 

The session is conducted bi-lingually (English + Hindi), and I have tried to explain the rather complex topic in an easy to understand manner. 


You are welcome to enquire more about this programme.
