Product Description


The book covers a lot of ground and combines a thoroughness of treatment with a lightness of touch. It is attractive for both undergraduate students seeking clear explanations and graduate students wanting depth. (Stephen Blundell, Oxford University) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

HASH(0x9067fe1c) out of 5 stars very handy text with a bit of everything 20 Feb. 2012
By Rory Staunton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am in the same department (as a physics phd student) as the author, whom I admire very much. I got this book because he will likely be on my committee and I want to make sure I know what he considers introductory nanoscience! The book is well organized. It is mainly a crash course -- it doesnt explain everything from the ground up, there are a lot of instances where important derivations are skipped -- but there is a lot of practical need-to-know info that you won't find anywhere else, and many concepts are explained very nicely in new ways.I highly recommend it to grad students in biophysics, materials or solid-state physics.

HASH(0x90c14d50) out of 5 stars Good Fundamental Review, But Technical 21 Jan. 2013
By Joseph Mcdermott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent introduction the the fundamentals of nanotechnology. The author has a surprisingly wide range of knowledge. He covers fundamental theory as well as anybody I've read (except Ricard Feynman) He includes an brief but cogent reviews of instrumentation and synthetic techniques. He explains these complex topics in a clear style. He even cleared up for me several obscure points on quantum mechanics.

Warning! This books assumes some knowledge of physics and chemistry. Anyone scared off by equations should look elsewhere. Did he really have to dwell on a serious account of statistical mechanics? On the other hand, I could skim over some of the more difficult math with little loss.

The descriptive sections a quite good. I had heard of amazing techniques such as Atomic Force Microscopy, but know I know how it works and where it is useful.
HASH(0x90caa51c) out of 5 stars It's great 2 July 2013
By America's True Threat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The book touches on all the general basis of nanoscience of which I was trying to develop an understanding... the book is pretty straight forward and holds lots of good information

I have the privilege to work as an undergraduate in one of Dr. Lindsay's research group. I think the course and book are top notch!
