Nanoscience and technology is the fundamental study involving engineering and manipulation of matter at the atomic or molecular level. The physical phenomena that are usually observed in the macroscopic world become pronounced when the dimensions of the matter go down. There are surprising novel properties and effects displayed by these nanodimension materials which are otherwise unobserved in their bulk counterpart and thus they find unique and wide range of applications for common needs. The effects that are common in nano dimensions include the statistical mechanical and the quantum mechanical ones. Nanomaterials have innumerable potential applications in almost all faces of our day to day life including medical diagnostics, drug delivery, energy efficiency, information and communication, semiconductors and optoelectronics devices, displays, aerospace industry, constructions, coatings, house-holds including foods, textiles and so on.
