These days, when people hear the word "nano" they probably think of Apple iPods. However, the size of the iPod Nano is actually far larger than true nanotechnology, and during the month of April, the National Science Foundation (NSF) aims to promote understanding of nanotechnology among the general public.

In the simplest of terms, nanotechnology is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. To give a better idea of nanotechnology's minuscule size, scientists can engineer nano systems that measure as small as 1/100,000 the width of a human hair. Nanotechnology is also the subject of a new three-part television series, aptly named "Nanotechnology: The Power of Small"-- funded by the NSF -- to be aired on public television beginning this month.
