Transistors using one electron at a time. Seemingly transparent sunscreens made with titanium dioxide particles that block harmful UV rays. Nanometer-sized specks of gold that change color to red and melt at 750°C instead of 1,064°C. Nanotechnology finds the unique properties of things at the nanometer scale and then puts them to use!
Although nanotechnology is a hot topic with a wide range of fascinating applications, the search for a true introductory popular resource usually comes up cold. Closer to a popular science book than a high-level treatise, Nanotechnology: The Whole Story
works from the ground up to provide a detailed yet accessible introduction to one of the world’s fastest growing fields.
Dive headlong into nanotechnology!
Tackling the eight main disciplines—
nanomaterials, nanomechanics, nanoelectronics, nanoscale heat transfer, nanophotonics, nanoscale fluid mechanics, nanobiotechnology, and nanomedicine—
this book explains what’s different at the nanoscale, and how we exploit those differences to make useful things. You’re holding the key to an exciting and rapidly evolving field.
So get The Whole Story
Delves into the history of nanotechnology, with special emphasis on key personalities and early milestones
Discusses the effects this new industry could have on human life, careers, education, and the environment
Covers scaling laws, giving us intuition about the physical ramifications of miniaturization
Dives headlong into nanotechnology, tackling the eight main disciplines:
nanomaterials, nanomechanics, nanoelectronics, nanoscale heat transfer, nanophotonics, nanoscale fluid mechanics, nanobiotechnology, and nanomedicine
Provides concrete examples of the most important fundamental differences between macroscale and nanoscale phenomena and devices
Uses real-world applications to teach key concepts
Makes things as simple as possible to understandFor More Information Please Visit:http://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9781439897805
