Written in an easy-to-understand style, the book describes the nuances of technological development in a purely scientific manner and provides a social perspective to their relevance for future warfare and for issues such as disarmament and arms control, as well as their impact on the environment. The book begins with a focus on the research going on in several developed countries in the last decade—some of them for nearly two decades now—and then narrows its focus on India and a few developing countries.

Role of Nanotechnology in Defence*
Role of nanotechnology in defence

Era of dreaming big is over. Set on this principle, scientists are developing nanoscience, commonly referred as nanotechnology (NT). Many predict that the future of the world is likely to be governed by this technology. For the last few decades, scientists around the world have been particularly exploring the use of this technology in medicine and electronics. In fact, the spin-offs of NT are impacting developments in areas like computer chips, cosmetics like sunscreens, self-cleaning windows and stain-resistant clothing.

NT has the potential to reduce costs with its multiple applications and the inherent ability to produce new materials like non-corroding and flexible iron. This technology is emerging as an ‘industrial force’ worldwide. The NanoBusiness Alliance trade group ...
