Aplicações de nanotecnologia

Materials that exhibit different physical properties as a result of their nanoscale constitution are being used in existing or entirely new technologies and products. In many cases, the application of these materials are still in various stages of research and development, but some are already available commercially.

For example, clothing manufacturers have used fabrics containing nanoparticles to create stain resistant garments. Automobile manufacturers have incorporated various nanostructured materials into body parts to make them stronger. Colored light filters and colored lamps have been created by altering the optical properties of colloidal suspensions using nanoparticles of different sizes and shapes. Carbon nanotubes have been incorporated into sporting goods (such as bicycle frames and tennis rackets) to enhance strength and reduce weight.
