Investment in the future – Applications in the present time

The in­dus­tri­al de­vel­op­ment of the Nano-world is going hand in hand since the dis­cov­ery of the scan­ning probe tech­nolo­gies. The mi­cro­scop­ic in­ves­ti­ga­tion of the Nanos­truc­tures of the mat­ter, as well as the knowl­edge won there­by and the in­creas­ing un­der­stand­ing of the self­or­ga­ni­za­tion in the atom­ic and molec­u­lar is con­tribut­ing strong­ly in the Nano-de­vel­op­ments.

Nan­otech­nol­o­gy is no new in­ven­tion. The liv­ing be­ings of our plan­et are based in es­sen­tial func­tions on high­ly reg­u­lar struc­tures in the nm range. One can find the bion­ic nan­otech­nol­o­gy with the known Lostus-ef­fect, but also at cell level kick a whole se­ries of nanoscop­ic ma­chines in ac­tion. There is a large num­ber of nanoscop­ic ma­chines like (Ki­nesin/Dynein), (scourge ap­pa­ra­tus­es) and even ro­tary gen­er­a­tors (ATP-Syn­thase). A way for the ex­ploita­tion of the nan­otech­nol­o­gy leads throuhg the use of these al­ready op­ti­mized “pro­tein ma­chines”.

How­ev­er, Nano- areas can be also reached by the ap­pli­ca­tion of more new phys­i­cal in­stru­ments and meth­ods in order to futher re­duce the scale of pre­sent mi­crosys­tems. Or by the use of the nat­u­ral self­or­ga­ni­za­tion of molecules and Nan­oteilchen. If one suc­ceeds in un­der­stand­ing these atom­ic and molec­u­lar di­men­sions, new pos­si­bil­i­ties of the op­ti­miza­tion of ma­te­ri­al qual­i­ties and the de­vel­op­ment of new prod­ucts can orig­i­nate.
Pri­mar­i­ly, it is im­por­tant in the Nan­otech­nol­o­gy to to un­der­stand the makroskopic func­tions which are de­ter­mined by the ge­om­e­try and the chem­i­cal qual­i­ties deep into the nm-scale.

In­sights into the Nano-Cos­mos – to­wards the ma­nip­u­la­tion a num­ber of op­er­a­tional and an­a­lyt­i­cal tools have been de­vel­oped. The high qual­i­ty con­trol of the in­dus­trail pro­cess and the in­crease of the pro­duc­tion speed was and is a very im­por­tant point in the Nano-in­dus­try-de­vel­op­ment.

The Scan­ning Chem­i­cal force Mi­croscopy (CFM) has been de­vel­oped to be one of the most im­por­tant an­a­lyt­i­cal meth­ods in the area of the Nano-de­vel­op­ment.
