What is Nanotechnology?
With nanotechnology we can observe atoms and molecules and move them around. New materials, improved medicine, high-speed computers, and enhanced protection of the environment are just some of the promising prospects of using nanotechnology.
Scientists from the Nano-Science Center at the Niels Bohr Institut, Denmark and the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland, have shown that a single nanowire can concentrate the sunlight up to 15 times of the normal sun light intensity. The results are surprising and the potential for developing a new type of highly efficient solar cells is great.
