Characterization Techniques used in Nanomaterials -A Review


Nanotechnology is the design of science, characterization and production of nano scale, which is about 1-100 nm. Nano science can be used across other field like Chemistry, Electronics Engineering, Physics, Biology, and Material Science. In the current scenario nano materials are used significantly quite different from their bulk counterparts used traditionally. Nano Science R&D includes manipulation under control of nano structure and their integration into larger material component. This paper will be a brief idea of various techniques which are used to characterize the nanomaterials.
