Micro- and nano-technology allows the manipulation of matter on a near-atomic scale (~1 billionth of a meter!) to produce new structures, materials and devices. At the micro- and nano-scale, materials begin to exhibit unique properties that affect physical, chemical, and biological behaviors, which may provide unprecedented opportunities for frontier medical research to detect biomolecules effectively and to study the properties of biomolecules in details.

微納技術可在近原子尺度(約十億分之一米)上操縱物質,以創造新的結構、材料和設備。不同材料在微米和納米尺度上會展現出影響其物理、化學和生物行為的獨特性質,這可以為前沿醫學深入研究生物分子性質以及實現有效檢測提供前所未有的機會。
