History: The word nanotechnology is originated from the Greek word nano, which means extremely small. This name was evolved by a Japanese scientist Norio Taniguchi in 1976. The interest of scientists in nanotechnology started increasing in 1986 when a scanning tunnelling microscope was developed by Nobel Prize winner West German scientist Gerd Binnig and 24 Engineering Materials: Research, Applications and Advances Switzerland scientist Heinrich Rohrer. This is the same microscope with the help of which the scientists could easily visualize the structure of an atom and a molecule for the irst time.

The broken bones are irst surgically reset into their proper position. Then a plate is screwed onto the broken bones to hold them in place, while the bone heals back together. This method has been proven both successful and useful in treating all manner of breaks; however, there are still some drawbacks. After initially placing the plate on the break or fracture, the bones are compressed together and held under some slight pressure, which helps to speed up the healing process of the bone. Unfortunately, after only a couple of days, the tension provided by the steel plate is lost, and the break or fracture is no longer under compression, slowing the healing process.

An engineering material is used in one or all of the following areas: 1. Machines (such as IC engine, alternator, lathe) 2. Structures (such as building, bridge, tower) 3. 1 Important Properties of Materials Each material possesses a number of properties. Some most important properties are as follows: 1. Mechanical: creep, fatigue, toughness, hardness, impact, ductility, malleability, resilience and brittleness 2. Physical: density, melting point, colour, shape, size, inish and porosity Engineering Materials: Research, Applications and Advances 6 3.
