Section 1

Question Answer
Nanomateriala material made up of nanostructures between 1-100nm in size.
Examples of nanomaterialsnanoparticles, nanotubes, or nanocrystals
Nanotechnologythe design, characterization, production, and application of structures, devieces, and systems by controlled manipulation of size and shape at the nanometer scale (atomic, molecular, and macromolecular scale) that produces structures, devices, and systems with at least one novel/superior characteristic or property
Nanoscale1-10 nm in length
Nanoscale Materialsmaterials of dimensional features in nanoscale range

Section 2

Question Answer
Examples of dimensional features:particle diameter (clusters), grain size (nanocrystalline materials), layer thickness (films), island size (surface grown quantum dots), width of a conducting line of a chip (semiconductor devices)
Nanoscale sciencepursuit of knowledge about matter in the nanoscale range of dimensions
Fullerenes and CNT Applicationsreinforcements in composites, wires, STM tips, sensor applications hydrogen storage
