NANOROBOTICS: FUTURISTIC APPROACH IN MEDICINEAbstract
Nano robotics is an emerging, advanced and multidisciplinary field that calls for scientific and technical expertise of medical, pharmaceutical, bio-medical, engineering as well as other applied and basic scientists. Nano robots differ from macro-world robots specifically in their Nano-sized constructs. Due to their small size and wide functional properties, nano robots have created exceptional prospects in medical, biomedical and pharmaceutical applications. Although, no technology is available to construct artificial nano robots, it is now possible to create nano robots by using biological means. Nanorobots, nano machines, and other nano systems are objects with overall dimensions at or below the micro meter range and are made of assemblies of nanoscale components with individual dimensions ranging approximately between 1 to 100 nm. Smaller the size, larger is the specific surface area and energy efficiency. This is the prime concept behind all micro or nanotechnology devices. Even though the nano robots have not yet been deployed in any commercial application with currently available science and technology, the ongoing intensity of research and development work tends to a brighter future where we expect number of miracles with such tiny nano machines. In this context a productive discussion has been carried out concerned with the future application as well as past-present research scenario of nano robotics.
