Review

"... is an outstanding compendium of information about an exciting new field. Owing to its high quality and complete coverage of the many topics in this area, this well referenced book will have a long and very useful life as a primary text for students experienced and new in nanoelectronics. It is a very impressive book." Prof. Richard Siegel, US Nano–Initiative

From the Back Cover

Providing an introduction to electronic materials and device concepts for the major areas of current and future information technology, the value of this book lies in its focus on the underlying principles. Illustrated by contemporary examples, these basic principles will hold, despite the rapid developments in this field, especially emphasizing nanoelectronics. There is hardly any field where the links between basic science and application are tighter then in nanoelectronics & information technology. As an example, the design of resonant tunneling transistors, single electron devices or molecular electronic structure is simply inconceivable without delving deep into quantum mechanics. This textbook is primarily aimed at students of physics, electrical engineering and information technology, as well as material science in their 3rd year and higher. It is equally of interest to professional wanting a broader overview of this hot topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Electronics goes nano 29 Oct. 2003
By Pichierri Fabio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The title "Nanoelectronics and Information Technology" was extremely attractive and, hence, I decided to buy this multi-authored book as soon as it became available on the market. This monumental 1000-pages book comprises 40 chapters which have been organized in 8 sections:
(I) Fundamentals, (II) Technology and analysis, (III) Logic devices, (IV) Random access memories, (V) Mass storage devices, (VI) Data transmission and interfaces, (VII) Sensor arrays and imaging systems, and (VIII) Displays.
Fully covering each of the above fields would require far more space than that available in a book of this same size. Hence, the editor has done the clever choice of writing chapters 20-30 pages long, each of them sufficiently self contained. For example, the (sub)field of Molecular Electronics (my favorite topic) is treated in ch.20, pp. 503-525. This chapter ends with 66 references, enough for further study. The closely related subject on Organic Light Emitting Devices (ch. 38) can be consulted by checking either the general index at the end of the book or the table of contents. Placing some keywords at the end of the former chapter, however, would have greatly facilitated my jump to the latter. Chapters seems being too independent from each other. This, I think, is the weakest point of this monumental opera. The book contains plenty of good graphs and figures, many of them colored, placed nearby the text. Taking into account both the huge amount of information contained in this book and the difficulties in amalgamating the many different topics in this rapidly developing field, I finally decided to rate this book with five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book with Superb Graphics. 26 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Some books on nanotechnology are just trying to capitalize on the nanotechnology craze. There are some books on nanotechnology that are not worth buying. But not this one. This book is hefty (1000 pages). If you want to learn about nanotechnology and read about the fundamental physics and chemistry of nanoscale materials and devices, this is the book to buy. This book can give you a very quick tutorial of what you want to know immediately without the hassle of having to read through boring pages of unnecessary stuffs. I am very impressed with the professionally drawn color illustrations and typesetting. As the title suggests, this book also covers IT-related devices (eg memories, data storage, and data transmissions). You can see that a lot of time and efforts by numerous people have been collectively spent in preparing this book. If you are not sure which book on nanotechnology to buy, but need something that is a bit more encyclopedic with adequate background materials instead of just reviewing current trends, then buy this one first.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Monumental Book 3 Jun. 2004
By HJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am a microelectronics circuit designer with some physics/EE background. I believe this is "The Comprehension of Entire Human History on Science and Technology", done beautifully. Although the focus is rather on physical science area (with exceptional reviews on process/device technology), it also deals with philosophically intriguing topics like ultimate computer and quantum computing. In order to get a decent review for each topic, you need to spend several days in library. This book does it in one book-length beautifully. I show my respect to the Editor Prof. Waser for the insight and endeavor for this book.
