Nanotechnology is an interdisciplinary science to a large extent. It combines the laws of physics, chemical processes and biological principles with one another at the nanoscale level. The high level of interdisciplinarity leads to the necessity that scientists need to acquire additional skills and knowledge, for example in the fields of characterization techniques, nanooptics, nanoelectronics, nanomaterials and biotechnology.
