Product Description


"This work is especially valuable for undergraduates as well as beginning graduate students. Moreover, even general readers with some science background should be able to follow the text. Highly recommended." (Choice , 1 April 2011) "It would be incomprehensible to a layman, but provides an interesting overview at graduate level of some aspects of the subject". (Chemistry & Industry, 10 January 2011)

From the Back Cover

A clear primer on the basics of this emerging field What is nanotechnology? What does it do, and why is it expected to have a significant impact on our lives? These seemingly simple questions do not have easy, direct answers. There are so many aspects to nanotechnology that the uninitiated often find it challenging to begin to understand and appreciate it. Introduction to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology explains the basics in clear language, even to those who do not have a scientific background. It reveals the present state of the art and latest applications in nanotechnology, makes estimates of where the technology is headed, and predicts what will be possible in the future. The book begins by addressing how small the nanometer length scale is in comparison to macroscopic objects and why it is special. From a discussion of naturally occurring nanoparticles and nanoparticles composed of carbon, the book then presents the tools of nanotechnology that can build, image, and manipulate nanostructures to build materials and devices (such as MEMS devices and scanning probe technologies), as well as one of the most exciting aspects of the field—combining Bottom–up and Top–down approaches so that individual nanostructures can be probed. Readers will learn about artificially produced nanostructures that have a built–in functionality, such as magnetic nanoparticles that can store a data bit. They′ll see how it is possible to produce biologically active nanoparticles that can interact with specific cells in the body, which can lead to powerful new treatments for diseases such as cancer. In addition, they′ll discover the potential for building autonomous machines with nanoscale components—and how the tools of nanotechnology may one day lead to a deeper understanding of our universe. From new areas of biomedical applications to probing the "quantum vacuum," Introduction to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology is accessible to all general science readers, as well as to undergraduates and graduate students studying nanotechnology.

This book is a great introduction to the fascinating subject of nano technology. It is not too technical while advance d reading boxes are a good source for further investigation for science students

Only buy this book if you have intermediate understanding toward Nano-tech 22 Jun 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've had this book for 2 months now and I like this book because it's about nano-tech and well described of how atoms perform at the nano level. However, I also don't like this book because the author writes in a strong scientific vocabulary. After all this book is suppose to be a "Introduction" not a advance course in nano-tech. I'm a entrepreneur in this industry and new so if you're getting started in this nano-tech industry i would recommend you just learn from Youtube.

-Difficult to understand if your a beginner
and even though this book is an introductory.
-the title of this book should be titled "Advanced"
instead of "Introduction"

-The author has provided pictures to illustrate
diagrams on every page.
-small compact size. This is not a huge thick
college text book.
-affordable/reasonable price

Overall I rate this book 4 stars.

Format: Paperback
It is a great book for undergraduates, graduates and also experts in nanotechnology fields. Author has given holistic feel to the readers. Students can use this as a text book. After reading this book, scientists will make nanotechnology a reality and revolutionize life as we know today. Congratulations for his great effort to bring out the book in scientific community

This book has the quality be a very useful to introduction of nanoscience in the case of undergraduate students. The principal themes have introduced in this book in very intuitive and formal (some case).
