This presentation discusses the technological advancement in nanotechnology and some aspects of applications in engineering devices and biotechnologies. The lecture outlines the logical development of technology and engineering following (1) initiation of idea and visualization, (2) ability to control and measurements and (3) intense effort in engineering developments. The talk includes a brief review of the historical development in biology, nano and potential applications of electro-magnetic phenomena. The talk also describes the activities in the Center for Nanomagnetics and Biotechnology for clinical applications using nanomagnetic particles. Several magnetic phenomena in life sciences are illustrated. Brief discussions of nano materials are introduced. The lecture then concludes with possible near term applications and long term developments of nanotechnology in biomedical and bioengineering.
