The strategies towards the realization of nanotechnology were discussed. The strategies are mainly based on nanofabrication and includes technologies such as nano-lithography, nano-imprint, and etching. The field emission of a cantilevered nanotube based approaching sensors, resistance variation of cantilevered dual nanotube based thermal probes, and a potential telescoping nanotube linear actuator are also rivewed. It is shown that the new family of sensors and actuators, nano sensors and actuators, will be enabled if new materials and physical effects are discovered and new fabrication, assembly, integration and packaging technologies are developed.
