 What is so special about nanoscale?

• Every property has a critical length scale where the fundamental
physics of
   that property starts to change
• Nanoscale building blocks are within these critical length scales
• Building blocks impart to the nanostructures new and improved
properties
   and functionalities
• Essentially any material property can be engineered through the
controlled
   size-selective synthesis and assembly of nanoscale building blocks
• For multifunctional applications, more than one property and one
length scale
   must be considered.
