Nanobots are the recent and may be the future technology for many fields. The health care industry of today is focusing on developing minimally invasive techniques for diagnosis, as well as treatment of ailments. They are microscopic in nature and are used for various research purpose. It is used for medical as well an industrial purpose. some nanobots are used as a microscopic in surgical fields. This kind of microscopes is used to arrange the atoms. it is used in MRI where light is passed precisely through the concern region to heat it at 131°F which destroys the concern cells. In industrial purpose precisely it is used in oil industries. It is used in nanoparticles to produce light more efficiently. They are used in the manufacture of small processors and chips and in computers helps to bridge the technological gaps between physics, chemistry and biology in nanoscale.
