9780199544219: Introduction to Nanoscience

Nanoscience is not just physics, chemistry, engineering, or biology, but rather an integration of all of these disciplines. The first comprehensive and interdisciplinary text of its kind, Introduction to Nanoscience is an ideal handbook for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, materials engineering, chemical engineering, bioengineering, and biology.

Written from the ground up for a diverse audience, the book is divided into three parts. Part I (The Basics) offers a self-contained introduction to quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and chemical kinetics that requires no more than a basic background in college calculus. The author's conceptual approach and an array of examples and conceptual exercises enable even those students with limited mathematical knowledge to grasp the majority of the essential material. Part II (Tools) covers microscopy, single molecule manipulation and measurement, nanofabrication, and self-assembly. Part III (Applications) covers electrons in nanostructures, molecular electronics, nano-materials and nanobiology. Each chapter starts with a survey of the required basics and ends by making contact with current research literature.

Introduction to Nanoscience is also the first text to incorporate the often-neglected topic of complexity in nanosystems, dealing explicity with emergent phenomena from chemistry to biology. Examples include Kramer's theory of reactions (Chapter 3); the Marcus theory of electron transfer (Chapter 8); and enzyme catalysis, molecular motors, and fluctuations in gene expression and splicing, all covered in Chapter 9. In addition, the book includes Richard Feynman's visionary essay, "There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom," which describes the consequences of smallness and quantum behavior.

Review:

"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

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Nanoscience is not physics, chemistry, engineering or biology. It is all of them, and it is time for a text that integrates the disciplines. This is such a text, aimed at advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in the sciences. The consequences of smallness and quantum behaviour are well known and described Richard Feynman s visionary essay There s Plenty of Room at the Bottom (which is reproduced in this book). Another, critical, but thus far neglected, aspect of nanoscience is the complexity of nanostructures. Hundreds, thousands or hundreds of thousands of atoms make up systems that are complex enough to show what is fashionably called emergent behaviour . Quite new phenomena arise from rare configurations of the system. Examples are the Kramer s theory of reactions (Chapter 3), the Marcus theory of electron transfer (Chapter 8), and enzyme catalysis, molecular motors, and fluctuations in gene expression and splicing, all covered in the final Chapter on Nanobiology. The book is divided into three parts. Part I (The Basics) is a self-contained introduction to quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics and chemical kinetics, calling on no more than basic college calculus. A conceptual approach and an array of examples and conceptual problems will allow even those without the mathematical tools to grasp much of what is important. Part II (The Tools) covers microscopy, single molecule manipulation and measurement, nanofabrication and self-assembly. Part III (Applications) covers electrons in nanostructures, molecular electronics, nano-materials and nanobiology. Each chapter starts with a survey of the required basics, but ends by making contact with current research literature. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780199544219
