 The University of Manchester   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
On the nanometre scale, the borders between physics, chemistry, materials science, biology etc, become blurred, meaning any breakthrough could have a massive impact on all these fields, and it already had.
With the device feature sizes coming down rapidly to 100 nanometre (nm), the miniaturization of conventional semiconductor devices is reaching its fundamental limits.
On the other hand, many new physical effects associated with the nanometre dimensions have provided us new ways to invent novel diodes, transistors, detectors, and even circuits that are much faster, more sensitive, more powerful, and very often much simpler and beautiful, too.

 Xilinx approaches 90-nanometre goal - Printer friendly - ZDNet UK News   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Moving to a smaller nanometre chipmaking process -- such as from 130- to 90-nanometres as IBM is doing for Xilinx -- produces smaller transistors and that are closer together inside a chip.
A distance of 90 nanometres is about a thousandth of the width of a human hair.
The move to 90 nanometres will help Xilinx offer a new line of smaller, less expensive FPGA chips, which will cost less than $25 when they are available to companies, such as network gear makers, in large quantities of 250,000 or more next year, the company said.

In addition, nanometre columns of Si formed somewhat uncontrollably using porous Si are known to be light-emitting.
In particular, for the first time we have cut nanometre sized holes in Si, but in crystalline Si this occurs at "special sites" for reasons that are not yet clear (Bullough et al [5, 6], Humphreys et al [7, 8]).

 CRDReference: Boonaert, C. J. P., Rouxhet, P. G. and Dufrene, Y. F. 2000 Surface properties of microbial cells probed ...
Atomic force microscopy (AFM) was used to characterize, under water, the surface morphology and molecular interactions of two types of microbial cells: fungal spores (Phanerochaete chrysosporium) and bacteria (Lactococcus lactis).
High-resolution deflection images showed that the spore surface was uniformly covered with patterns of rodlets that were several hundred nanometres in length and had a periodicity of approximately 10 nm.
These results show that AFM is a powerful tool for probing the surface properties of native microbial cells on the nanometre scale.

 Intel shrinks chips to 90 nanometres: ZDNet Australia: News: Business   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Currently, the fastest chips are made on the 130-nanometre process, which means that circuits inside the chip measure around 130 nanometres wide.
By shrinking the average feature size to 90 nanometres, Intel can cut the size of the processors in half or, more likely, add more features to its chips because it will be able to put twice the number of transistors in the same area.
The transistor gate, which determines whether a transistor is "on" or "off," measures less than 50 nanometres on 90-nanometre chips, smaller than the 70-nanometre gate length on 130-nanometre chips.

 Nanotechnology
Nanoparticles (clusters at nanometre scale), for example, have very interesting properties and are proving extremely useful as catalysts and in other uses.
Gold, for example, which is chemically inert at normal scales, can serve as a potent chemical catalyst at nanoscales.
"Nanosize" powder particles (a few nanometres in diameter, also called nano-particles) are potentially important in ceramics, powder metallurgy, the achievement of uniform nanoporosity, and similar applications.

 bit-tech.net Forums - Intel pushes 65 nanometre process back, claim
Intel has publicly stated that it already has 65 nanometre process technology in test conditions, and next year was supposed to be the time when it started shrinking dies all over again.
If this is true, then as sure is eggs is eggs, we'll find AMD deciding to push its 65 nanometre technology back as well.
AMD and Intel dance down the same path and if we'd even a scintilla of sceptism in our bones, we'd be suspicious at the way this X86 virtual cartel appears to price and pace its products in step.

Moving to a 90 nanometre chipmaking process means smaller transistors, which in turn means more transistors on a chip and better performing chips.
IBM's current generation of semiconductors is built using a 130 nanometre manufacturing process - the nanometre measurement refers to the average size of features inside chips produced via the process, features such as transistors and the interconnects that link them.

 ElectronicsWeekly.com - Nanometre hot spots push EDA
Industry analysts predict that by 2010 mainstream designs will most likely include geometries of 32 nanometres with 100 billion transistors on a die, as well as designs encompassing multi-chip systems.
As mainstream design moves squarely into the nanometre realm, performance, power and cost issues all need to be carefully balanced.
In the nanometre realm, sub-wavelength lithography processes are introducing new yield loss mechanisms at a rate, magnitude, and complexity large enough to require dramatic improvements in tools and methodologies.

A plant in Oregon is already turning out chips with 90 nanometre wide components using strained or stretched silicon, the foundation for all chips, so that signals run faster across the chip.
The second step is the ability to build thinner transistors; microscopic silicon-based switches that rapidly open and close to create the ones and zeroes of the digital world.
Chips currently in commercial production are generally 130-nanometres to 180 nanometres wide.

 New four-in-one tribological probe microscope measures friction, hardness, elasticity, and shape to levels less than a ...
It is increasingly important for manufacturers of high tech materials and coatings to understand exactly what is going on at the surface of their products right down to the nanometre level.
The device uses a diamond tip (Berkovich tip with a 100nm ¡V nanometre - radius) mounted on a silica rod a few millimetres long, fixed on a thin beryllium/Copper (Cu/Be) foil acting as a flexible spring.
At the same time the friction of the surface causes the probe tip to tilt and by measuring the amount of tilt the device is able to get a measure of the surface's friction properties.

 Nanometre Structures for Future Optoelectronic Applications
NANOPT focuses on the development of lateral nanometre structures for novel quantum wire lasers and quantum wire modulators by different technologies.
In order to assess the potential of the different approaches, the device-relevant physical properties of quantum wire and quantum dot structures will be analysed, mainly by optical spectroscopy and model calculations.
Lateral nanometre structures are highly interesting for future optoelectronic applications, because they should allow the tailoring of device properties by varying device dimensions.

One strategy that is being pursued to tackle the international problem of actinide contamination of soils, sediments and water is to use microbial activity to 'fix' these radionuclides into an insoluble form that cannot be readily dispersed.
Here we show that uraninite (UO(2)) particles formed from uranium in sediments by bacterial reduction are typically less than 2 nanometres across and that the small size has important implications for uraninite reactivity and fate.
Because these tiny particles may still be transported in an aqueous environment, precipitation of uranium as insoluble uraninite cannot be presumed to immobilize it.

 Nanotechnology Defined - What is Nanotechnology All About
One nanometre is a billionth of a metre; or about 1/80,000 the width of a human hair.
Working at the nanometre level offers many opportunities for creating novel products; and any product, which possesses a characteristic, or attribute that involves some manipulation or measurement at or below 100 nanometres (or 0.1 of a micrometre) falls under the umbrella of nanotechnology.
It is likely that almost any product you care to think of within the next decade (or less!) will have some nanometre feature, and to quote one US source, in ten to fifteen years, $1trillion in products worldwide will be affected by nanotechnology.
