The atomic and molecular level analysis of controlling matter in nanotechnology deals with structures and components with a size ranging from 1 to 100 nanometers in at least one dimension, and includes the development or modification of materials or devices within that size range. The development of new materials with one dimension at the nanoscale is one of the fundamental aspects of nanotechnology. These materials, referred to as nanomaterials, are nanoscale engineered and have radically different properties than their "bulk" equivalents. The concept of nanocomposites has greatly extended to include a wide range of systems, including one-dimensional, two-dimensional, three-dimensional and amorphous materials, composed of distinctly different components and mixed at the scale of the nanometer.
