mission is to ensure that every web user has access
to the NanoTechnology news items, regardless of the
origin of the Nano news item i.e. scientific / researched
based or from the mainstream media.
We accomplish this through our free, online NanoTech
News Portal. a quick and easy "over
view " of nanotech news, allowing
the reader to click on, then click through to
the original 3rd party news items. We
insist that the quality of this service rivals
that of similar fee-based services, delivering
quality NanoTech news to all members of the public
through the efficient use of technology.

does the word Nanotechnology
Nanotechnology. ( NanoTech ) Coming from the Greek
Nano is a Greek prefix used in the metric system.
Basically it means really, really small.
over the world Governments, Educational Research centers,
and Commercial companies are working on projects like:
the size of mosquitoes.
the size of pinheads.
so small you need a powerful electronic
microscope to just to see them.
It is now
merely a matter of time and engineering before these
types of products find their way into “white goods
“appliances, cars, pockets, and purses, doing things
we can hardly imagine in a very space-efficient, energy-efficient,
and materials-efficient manner.
does the word tsunami mean?
tsunami is a Japanese word which translates
as "harbor wave", now used internationally
to refer to a series of waves traveling across the
ocean with extremely long wavelengths ( up to hundreds
of miles between wave crests in the deep ocean).
When these waves approach shore, the speed of the
wave decreases as they begin to "feel" the
bottom. It is at this time that the height of
the wave drastically increases. As
the waves strike shore they may inundate low-lying
coastal areas resulting in mass destruction and in
many instances loss of life. Often a tsunami is incorrectly
referred to as a tidal wave. Tidal waves are simply
the periodic movement of water associated with the
rise and fall of the tides produced by the gravitational
attraction of the sun and moon. Tsunamis have no connection
with the weather nor with tides.
is a tsunami wave different from a normal wave?
waves you see at the beach are generated by wind blowing
over the sea surface. The size of these waves depends
on the strength of the wind creating them and the
distance over which it blows. Generally the distance
between these waves, known as the wavelength, ranges
from a couple of feet to perhaps a thousand feet.
The speed of these waves as they travel across the
ocean ranges from a few miles an hour up to sixty
miles an hour in some instances.
waves resulting from physical mechanisms ( see above
question) behave much differently than wind generated
waves. The magnitude of the disturbance causing the
tsunami is the primary factor influencing the size
and strength of the waves. The height of the wave
when it is generated is very small, usually less than
a few feet. The distance between successive wave crests
or the wavelength however, is much larger than that
of a normal wave and may be hundreds of miles apart.
Depending on the depth of the water in which the tsunami
is traveling, it may attain speeds of up to 500 miles
