The term nanotechnology was coined for the first time by Taniguchi in 1974.2 The concept of nanotechnology was introduced to the world during the legendary lecture “There is plenty of room at the bottom” by Richard Feynman on December 29th 1959 at the annual meeting of the American Physical Society at the California Institute of Technology.Nanotechnology can be defined as “Research and technology development at the atomic, molecular, or macromolecular levels; in the scale of approximately 1 to 100 nanometer range; to provide a fundamental understanding of phenomena and materials at the nanoscale; and to create and use structures, devices, and systems, which have novel properties and functions because of their small and/or intermediate size.
