Imagine a world that seems to defy the laws of physics; a world where electrical forces rule and gravity takes a back seat. Enter the world of nanoscience and nanotechnology.

It has been more than fifty years since Richard Feynman, in his famous address, "Plenty of Room at the Bottom," imagined a science where researchers and engineers could achieve remarkable feats by manipulating matter and creating structures all the way down to the level of individual atoms.
