Nanotechnology is the fourth generation that appeared in the world of electronics. It was preceded by the first generation that used the electronic lamp, including the television, and the second generation that used the transistor, and then the third generation of electronics that used the integrated circuits, which is a very small piece that by reducing the size of many devices, but rather raising their efficiency and enlarging their functions. The fourth generation came with the use of microprocessors, which made a huge revolution in the field of electronics by producing Personal Computers and silicon computer chips that made progress in many scientific and industrial fields. The fourth generation, on the other hand, is called “molecular manufacturing,” meaning that we make the material by assembling the molecules in the vacuum whenever we want, which whenever the raw material is found or was manufactured by nanotechnology, we can make large things that may reach a plane or other life basics. The beginning was 10 years ago, and he added that he started working on nanotechnology itself nearly 10 years ago, as it is a very modern technology and is considered the technology of the age, century, and decade, and the world is still preparing research and studies on how this technology and its economic and investment dimensions. For his part, said Mia Maban, director of the Center for Nanotechnology at NASA’s Ames Research Center, “There has been definite progress in this area compared to the main research that was conducted 5 or 6 years ago.”
