A new world is forming. Populated by objects with strange behaviours, this universe is that of nanometres, that is, the size of atoms and molecules. Nanosciences study the properties of these objects. Nanotechnologies integrate them into many devices for practical uses.
This DVD, designed for a curious audience, invites you to take an amazing journey to discover the nanoworld. It is part of a collection of thematic DVDs and offers a five-step tour of the exotic realm of the nanoworlds:
