The world had faced a leap in the field of science and technology to a great extent in the last five decades. The fabrication of materials is done in a more miniaturized way for merging the different aspects of the working field in a single device. The paper presents a review of different technologies that had been used electronically for the last two decades for the production of substances that are used in the field of electronics, electrical and biochemistry. The review includes the development of nanoparticles, biosensors and other small scaled devices for practical applications like detection of bacteria and other pathogens. The paper also describes the process of ink-jet printing that had been used since its introduction and gives a few methods for making stable conductive compounds like silver, copper in room temperature.
