Product Description


BIOforum Europe, Vol. 8, 5th Issue, October 2004 "... provide a good foundation for thinking about the applications of nanotechnology, and the book is well illustrated, including explanatory diagrams to assist in the understanding of scientific principles." Sishen Xie, Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences and National Centre for Nanoscience & Technology, Beijing, small, 6/2005 "This book is intended to provide a guide to the ideas and physical concepts that allow an understanding of the changes that occur as the size scale shrinks toward the atomic scale. Our point of view is that a general introduction to the concepts of nano physics will add greatly to the ability of students and professionals whose undergraduate training has been in engineering or applied science, to contribute in the various areas of nanotechnology." Fachinformationszentrum (FIZ) Karlsruhe

From the Back Cover

With the second edition of his highly successful textbook ′Nanophysics and Nanotechnology′, the author has once more provided a unique, self–contained introduction to the physical concepts, techniques and applications of nanoscale systems by covering its entire spectrum from the latest examples right up to single–electron and molecular electronics. The book is basically at the level of an upper level undergraduate engineering or science student. New sections have been added on the use of DNA as an organizing stratagem in self–assembly, silicon nanowires and the latest applications of carbon nanotubes. Two new chapters have been added including pedagogy and the latest results in magnetoelectronics, spintronics, superconducting devices, and silicon based quantum computing. Additional problems have been provided. ∗ Free solutions manual available for lecturers at www.wiley–vch.de/supplements/

Would get 4 stars if at least some solutions were available. I don't understand why some publishers chose to go down this path... At least give odd number solutions! (which is still annoying, better to give them all, professors should be able to write their own class problems to be fair).

Excellent textbook 19 Mar. 2007
By N. Konofaos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This excellent textbook presents the basic concepts of Nanotechnology and Nanophysics in a well structured, solid manner, without leaving any aspects unattached. It is updated, with references to recently published work in top rated journals. The main advantage of the book is the wide spectrum of the issues covered, ranging from biology to quantum computing, allowing future applications to be tackled by the students easier.
Good technical discussion of the playing field 19 Feb. 2012
By Pan Gname - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This had a good quantitative take on the subject natter that I found refreshing. It also serves as a nice field survey of what is happening out there.
Exactly what it promises. An introduction to Nano-Technology 4 Jan. 2015
By Mr Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Exactly what I was looking for. A catalog introduction of nano technologies without deep in-roads into any specific one.
