The fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology are now growing very rapidly. The properties of nanostructures are different to those of the bulk material, due to the high surface area to volume ratio and possible appearance of quantum effects at the nanoscale. The study of size and shape effects upon material properties has therefore attracted enormous attention.

Nanoscience is revolutionizing the design of medical devices, tissue scaffolding and drug-delivery systems. New discoveries regarding nano-system, made in other research areas, have opened up the possibility of using them in biomedicine. However, such nanoscience and its possibilities, which sometimes border on science fiction, have to be kept in perspective so as not to lose sight of the limitations with respect to safety that applications within the human body impose.

Description: Coating technology has made great strides during recent years. The properties of surface layers determine the function and quality of entire components. Thus, it is essential to obtain information concerning the development and functionality of the topmost layers. The beneficial effect of coating technology can be observed in many manufacturing fields, where it solves problems such as wear, corrosion, erosion, electrical contact, etc. Even decoration falls under this heading.
