Over the last few years the development of various smart materials for the applications in nanotechnology has emerged as the science of all things in small. Advances in nanotechnology integrate all branches of engineering and science that deal directly with device components ranging in size between 1-100 nm. Nanotechnology has the potential to c hange every part of our lives. Nanotechnology affects all materials: ceramics, metals, magnetic materials, semiconductors, polymers, composites and biomaterials, which are the foundation of major technological advances. Nanotechnology will have an enormous impact in the upcoming decade. Presently commercial applications of nanotechnology have been in consumer electronics, sunscreen lotion, self - cleaning windows, strain-repellent fabrics, bouncy tennis balls etc. Future advances could change our approaches in manufacturing, electronics, IT and communications technology making previous technology redundant and leading to applications which could not have been developed or even thought about, without this new approach. The developments of devices that are minia turized, light, self-contained, use energy efficient are anticipated as the benefits of nanotechnology revolution.
