In sufficiently small objects the laws of physics are very different to those in the everyday macroscopic objects we are used to. At the nanoscale, the laws of quantum (rather than classical) physics become important and provide opportunities for many new and exciting fundamental discoveries, as well as building new materials and new novel electronic devices.
