Some materials have special properties when made in parts smaller than about 100 nm (nanometre). Nanoscience is the study and discovery of these new properties, and nanotechnology is their use in special products and applications. Prof Suprakas Sinha Ray, a world-renowned expert in nanocomposites, leads the Department of Science and Technology / CSIR National Centre for Nano-Structured Materials. The centre researches the production of nanocomposites and nanoparticles as well as their application.
