Abstract

The nanotechnology era is an expression commonly used in the electronics industry to show how nanotechnology has revolutionized this industry and is continuously contributing to its growth. Nanotechnology transformed the computing industry by continuously developing faster and smaller chips. Moreover, nanomaterials could be integrated with many electronic appliances to induce them with improved and more unique properties. In this chapter, different applications of nanotechnology in electronics are being covered. The applications range from the complex specialized use of nanomaterials in nano robots that dig for oil to the simple use of antibacterial nanocoatings in order to coat the interiors of household machines. The chapter shows the potential of a variety of nanomaterials (Nanowires, Quantum dots, nanoparticles) in a variety of products and/or processes and discusses the barriers corporations faced during the development of their products and how they could tackle these limitations.
