4 Surprising Nanotechnology Applications In Electronics 

Nanotechnology in robotics

Nanotech affects the electronic field by modifying devices and materials, making them more powerful. 

By altering materials on a nanoscale, we are getting durable devices with better quality.  


We get more efficiency that can support our day to day activities.  

Nanotechnology is improving electronic components’ capabilities, allowing us to have a better experience using the devices. 

It is increasing the density of memory chips, reducing power consumption, and MUCH MORE. 

Let’s unravel the 4 surprising nanotechnology applications in electronics. 




nanotechnology in electronics

Nanolithography is a growing field of techniques within nanotechnology dealing with the engineering of nanometer-scale structures. 

It can be translated as tiny writing onto the stone. Since all the words are Greek – “nanos” means little, “lithos” meaning stone, and “graphein” meaning to write. 

Nanotechnology is dealing with structures in the nanometer range.  

Nanolithography is altering that structure.  

All its techniques can be divided into two sections:  

  1. Regarding graving molecules that leave behind the desired structure.
  2. Regarding techniques that directly write the desired structure to a surface. 

These techniques weren’t applied to a nanoscale until the mid 18th century. 

With the evolution of the semiconductor industry, demand for techniques capable of producing micro- and nano-scale structures skyrocketed.  

Photolithography is a technique that was applied to these structures for the first time in 1958 beginning the age of nanolithography.  

Photolithography or optical lithography is a process used in microfabrication to pattern parts on a thin film or the bulk of a substrate. 

On a nanoscale, this technique is difficult and expensive, but still possible. 

The process is followed by a light projected through a blueprint of the pattern that will be printed.  

Intendedly the blueprint is larger than the pattern of the chip. 

The pattern is encoded in the light, while the system’s optics shrink the pattern and focus it onto a photosensitive silicon wafer. 

The system makes copies of the pattern until the whole wafer is covered in patterns. 

The electronics industry is investigating innovative means of using nanotechnology in fabricating computer chips. 

As photolithography is used to fabricate microchips, the process has to be repeated 100 times or more, laying patterns on top of patterns.  

The basic building block of a chip is the transistor. With nanotech by producing smaller, nano versions of chips, we are getting faster, and more powerful processors.  

Though there is still no certainty whether the nanoscale versions of transistors would function adequately, nanotechnology offers alternatives to photolithography, like X-ray lithography, electron-beam lithography, ion-beam lithography.  

New computer chips are stronger, smaller, and more POWERFUL than ever. 

They bring a new experience on using electronic devices. 

Everything will get faster. 

New possibilities on the way we use computers are on our way. 

Computer chips are changing the world. 


Nanotechnology in Displays



Displays are electronic devices we encounter every day, using our phones, tablets or computers. 

Nanotechnology has a huge impact in the production of OLED displays. 

Nanoparticle coatings are used for packing the OLEDs to protect them for environmental damage. 

Except for making them safer, nanotechnology can make displays BETTER. 

We can use nanowires as electrodes, making it possible to manufacture larger and more flexible OLED displays. 

We can expect flexible cell phones that can be rolled into the shape of a bracelet that you can wear around your wrist. 

Besides flexibility, nanotech improves display screens by offering us lower energy consumption of displays, using nanotubes. 

This involves reducing power consumption while decreasing the weight and thickness of the screens.  

Your phone’s battery will last longer. 

You will no longer have to worry if it’s waterproof or not, because the display will give it ULTIMATE protection. 

Your phone will give you an even more POWERFUL experience while using it. 




Nanotechnology in robotics

 Nanorobot is a tiny electric machine used to perform a specific task or tasks repeatedly at nanoscale dimensions. 

This invention is used in the field of medicine. 

They are nanodevices that have the purpose of maintaining and protecting the human body from pathogens. 

The use of nanotechnology combined with new biomaterials will offer a new medical applications approach, such as for surgical instrumentation, diagnosis and drug delivery.  

As researchers develop stronger nanorobots, they can be applied in early treatment and targeted drug-delivery for cancer. 

Cancer is one of the leading causes of deaths. 

Almost 10 million people die from cancer every year. 

Nanotech is going to prevent that. 

Patients will get immediate healthcare resulting in less deaths. 

Early treatment is a big step in medicine. It offers us security.  

We can finally feel safe. 

Progression in science and medicine is happening with the help of nanotechnology.  

We are here to see it. 

Nanotechnology is exploring a wider usage of nanorobots.  

They will change the way we see cosmetics, the way we monitor agriculture, and spread the way we use biological computation. 




nanotech application

Nanoradio is an electronic device which has nanotechnology acting as a radio transmitter and receiver by using nanocarbon tubes. 

They are also called carbon nanotube radios. 

One of the first nanoradios was constructed in 2007. 

Researchers of the University of California successfully managed to transmit an audio signal. 

They observed the nanoradio vibrating and transmitting a song called “Layla” by Eric Clapton. 

A regular radio includes fundamental parts such as tuner, amplifier, antenna and the demodulator. 

Nanoradios are special, because the nanotubes act like all of these parts without a need for extra equipment. 

Due to their small size, they have several applications, such as radio function in the bloodstream. 

Like nanorobots, nanoradios play a big role in cancer treatment. 

For cancer, the only way you can stop its spreading is by doing chemotherapy or, if it is possible, surgery. 

Surgery is a very delicate option, due to a high level of mortality.  

Chemotherapy, if started on time, can kill cancer.  

It uses chemicals that harm cancerous cells. 

The only disadvantage is that it affects the healthy cells too. 

Nanoradios can be used to prevent damage to healthy cells by remotely communicating with the radio to release drugs and specifically target cancerous cells. 

Except that, nanoradios can be implemented in specific cells. Within them they can release chemicals and treat the disease. 

Beside helping with this disease, the carbon nanotubes radios can monitor insulin levels of diabetes patients and use that information to release a drug or chemical. 

Diabetes is a serious disease following people of all age ranges. 

Nanoradios can prevent higher insulin levels, making patients secure whatever they are doing. 

This can help the sick patients live throughout their day to day activities without worrying about their lifetime disease. 

Many researches have to be done so nanoradios can function properly.  

We have an opportunity to live carefree, with the help of nano. 


Final thoughts 


The future of medical nanotechnology is going to employ nanorobots injected into the patient to perform work at a cellular level.  

Flexible displays will offer a new perspective on the way we use our devices, a new way we see the world. 

Chips will get mightier.  

With the help of nano, a NEW FUTURE is unraveling. 

It will surprise us all. 

Progression in science and medicine is happening with the help of nanotechnology.  

We are here to see it all.
