Tiny materials, big industry: SA’s new nanotechnology facility

The outputs of this multi-million rand project are too small to be seen with the naked eye. But nanomaterials – made through the application of nanotechnology – offer South Africa a high-technology niche to bolster our ailing manufacturing sector. Nanotechnology involves manipulating materials on an atomic level, with structures between one and 100 nanometres. For some context, a nanometre (nm)
