Research in nanotechnology garnering millions
In a time of technology, nowadays everything is on the palm of our hands. Let it be entertaining objects or health techs. All thanks to nanotechnology where it has helped to create compatible applications, making our daily life comfortable. That’s why research in nanotechnology has garnered millions of dollars.
Even in Nepal, nanotech has hit the interest of the youths followed by the development in various sectors such as health, says Prof Hem Raj Pant. “It has just been two decades since nanotechnology has been introduced. Whenever new subjects are introduced, it takes time for people to learn about it and see if it matches their passion. Since this field is still progressing here in Nepal, the perks will slowly unravel it.”
Pant is a professor in the Department of Applied Sciences at Institute of Engineering (IOE), Pulchowk Campus, Tribhuvan University. Besides, he is also a nanotech researcher.
According to Pant, there are also side effects of Nanotechnology. “It might affect our health. But if it’s used wisely, then the development of it will surely hit the road. It’s the future of technology.”
He wishes to see Nepal being exemplary in nanotech research and development.
