Ray Kurzweil interviews Eric Drexler, PhD (Nanotechnology Pioneer) about what nanotechnology actually is. Nanotechnology is defined as manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular, and supramolecular scale. It is therefore common to see the plural form "nanotechnologies" as well as "nanoscale technologies" to refer to the broad range of research and applications whose common trait is size.
