NanoSmano is your gateway to disruptive technologies - material science and nanotechnology, quantum science, artificial intelligence and robotics, additive manufacturing, and other emerging fields.

At the core of this trailblazing research are chemistry, biochemistry, physics, engineering, or quantum mechanics and most of the “disruption” begins on the micro and nanoscale.

As a science, nanotech is generally defined as the “manipulation of matter on the atomic scale”; the difference between nanoscience and nanotech is best defined by a 2006 report from the National Nanotechnology Initiative workshop on space research: “nanoscience is the study of the fundamental principles of matter at the scale of ~1-100 nm, while nanotechnology is the application of such knowledge to making materials and devices.”(1)

NanoSmano is one of the largest resources for nanotech and materials science research center links on the Net - international government, gov sponsored, private sector, and university research centers. These government and private sector centers are engaged in materials science research for the benefit of humanity and our environment. Over ninety pages with thousands of links to research centers worldwide: North and South America – U.S., Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Venezuela; Europe; Asia – Russia, China and the Asian Tigers; Australia and New Zealand; and Africa.

The NanoSmano news archive contains materials science and nanotech news – chemistry, physics, materials, engineering, and additive manufacturing from research centers across the globe.

The archive goes back to 1997 – thousands of international science news releases covering a wide variation of innovative materials science and nanotech applications; archive also includes 3d and 4d printing and “printed” products research. You can also follow science news on the NanoSmano Facebook page.

Within our site’s resources, you can stay abreast of the latest video and news releases and determine how your university or alma mater stacks-up in the new nano – quantum World.
