puts rigour into nanotech 30 Mar 2005
By W Boudville - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Nanotechnology has become such a buzzword in recent years, as many researchers and investors have clambered on this bandwagon. The term has become so loosely applied that some have argued for more rigour. Which Steiner provides here. While he does not claim that the topics in the book span all that might be correctly called nanotech, they cover much of it indeed.

He devotes a lot of discussion on the making and uses of quantum dots. Which are in fact typically at the nanometer length scale. There has been rapid progress in the improving of fabrication of devices using the dots. Notably for infrared detectors and lasers. The latter offer lower threshold currents than "conventional" solid state lasers.

But nanotubes and the like are also favourably mentioned. Along with the exciting prospect of integrating Germanium and Silicon onto the same device. This may let us build fully combined electronics and optical functionality onto the same chip, and have that be made using much of current Silicon fab technology. A possible improvement over using GaAs chips for optical applications, and then trying to integrate those with Si chips for the standard electronics.
