Difference between nano physics and nanotechnology

  1. Aug 24, 2013 #1
    I am preparing for a project based on nano physics, and I am just 'beginner'. While preparing I just could not make out the difference between nano physics and nanotechnology. Can somebody help me?

    Thank you very much.

    I would say that nano physics was the study of nano effects and nano technology was the application, the practical aspects of nano effects.

    Ok. When talking about 'nano' the effects which come across are related to quantum dynamics right? So can we say that on studying quantum dynamics a person is able to speak of nano physics?
