Draft definitions of nanoscience and nanotechnology
The following are the working group's draft definitions
of nanoscience and nanotechnology, which may change
as the project progresses:
"Nanoscience is the study of phenomena and manipulation
of materials at atomic, molecular and macromolecular
scales, where properties differ significantly from those
at a larger scale."
"Nanotechnology is the production and application
of structures, devices and systems by controlling shape
and size at nanometre scale."
