Nano is nothing but a scale that refers to one billionth (10-9) of a meter [1]. A mere imagination of the entire world of nano is enough to create great excitement and fervor - something, which may be called as Nanomania In nanoworld, the objects can neither be seen with naked eyes, nor touched or manipulated with hands like in the real world [2]. Various examples of objects above and below the nano length scale are shown in Figure
