In recent years nanotechnology has become one of the most important and exciting forefront fields in Physics, Chemistry, Engineering and Biology. It shows great promise for providing us in the near future with many breakthroughs that will change the direction of technological advances in a wide range of applications. Nanotechnologies are being spoken of as the driving force behind a new industrial revolution. Both private-and public-sector spending are constantly increasing. Scientists have raised concerns that the basic building blocks of nanotechnologies – articles smaller than one billionth of a meter – pose a potential new class of risk to health and the environment. In fact, all different scientific disciplines, including every single sector (such as nanomaterials, micro and nanomachines, micro and nanoelectronics), have their own paradigm. This is why innovations and industrial developments are profoundly different. However, these fields are strongly interlinked. It is therefore necessary to make our studies more interdisciplinary in order to enable us to understand the nanoworld.
