Dear Sirs,

I want to know if there is atall any difference between Thin film Physics and Nanotechnology.Although i feel as if there is no difference atall.Still i guess may be a thin line of difference may exist which i have no idea.

regards,

Rahul

I don't understand your question. How can you compare the two? Thin film physics is a specific stream of physics and engineering. Nanotechnology is a broad categorization of any technology/science that is dealing with nanometer-level physics.

but i feel they are the same.Nanotechnology uses thin film technology for designing sensors or anyother.

Well, we all know feelings are 100% totally superior to substantiated facts! So you should do fine on forming an informed opinion! :)

Your question is the equivalent of asking the difference between a field of activity and a tool that could be used in that field.

i.e. It is nonsense.

It is like asking what is the difference between mechanical engineering and a box of spanners.

Maybe if rahul motivates his question.... What kind of decision are you trying to base on this information? Or try to rephrase your question. Because as it stands ... for the current question, see 123jack's reply.
