What is Nanoscience?

Nanoscience is a new and emerging field of natural sciences treating objects in the scale of nanometers (nm), which is 10-9m or 0.000000001 m. It combines parts of physics, biology, chemistry focused on the world of small dimensions. By understanding nature in these small dimensions, one hopes to be able to achieve completely new ohysical, chemical and biological properties.
On this site, we want to provide you with more information about this new field and the posibilities for studying in this field at the Johannes Kepler University in Linz.
