    Hi Saurabh and welcome,

    I'm sure there are lots of kind members here, who can help you. Unfortunately your post has landed in a wrong forum somehow. Now no doubt that one the moderators will move this to a more proper area, with a better chance of a reply.

    Good luck.

    go to arxiv.org and start searching for nanotech papers. Start reading. Look up anything you don't understand.

    Try 'The Most Beautiful Molecule' and if you want something that goes into the elementary (early) ideas, pick up a copy of 'Pleasure of Finding Things Out', one of the lectures in the book goes into fitting all 24 volumes of Encylcopedia Brittanica on the head of a pin.

    If you find a good one, please reply on this thread (wherever it ends up). Edit: Here are two websites you might checkout (www.nanotechnology.com[/url]) & ([url]www.foresight.org[/URL]) - you might be able to start from there.

    Hmm, I would think that the first step would be to actually buy the ipod nano.

    I suggest "Introduction to NANOTECHNOLOGY" from Charles P Poole Jr and Frank J OWENS. It has served me well:wink:
