Seeing Nanostructures

Nanotechnology is an emerging field of engineering, but the small structure of the technology makes it intimidating for many. This website, hosted by The National Infrastructure Network, allows users to “see” nanotechnology. It more specifically addresses three questions: “Why would we want to make or study such small things? How would we make such small things? How would we see these...
