(sometimes shortened to "nanotech") is the manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular, and
supramolecular scale. The earliest, widespread description of nanotechnology referred to the
particular technological goal of precisely manipulating atoms and molecules for fabrication
of macroscale products, also now referred to as molecular nanotechnology. A more generalized
description of nanotechnology was subsequently established by the National Nanotechnology Initiative,
which defines nanotechnology as the manipulation of matter with at least one dimension sized
from 1 to 100 nanometers. This definition reflects the fact that quantum mechanical effects
are important at this quantum-realm scale, and so the definition shifted from a particular technological
goal to a research category inclusive of all types of research and technologies that deal with
the special properties of matter that occur below the given size threshold. "
