A comprehensive textbook that addresses the recent interest innanotechnology in the engineering, materials science, chemistry,and physics communities

In recent years, nanotechnology has become one of the mostpromising and exciting fields of science, triggering an increasingnumber of university engineering, materials science, chemistry, andphysics departments to introduce courses on this emerging topic.Now, Drs. Owens and Poole have revised, updated, and revamped their2003 work, Introduction to Nanotechnology, to make it moreaccessible as a textbook for advanced undergraduate- andgraduate-level courses on the fascinating field of nanotechnologyand nanoscience.

The Physics and Chemistry of Nanosolids takes a pedagogicalapproach to the subject and assumes only an introductoryunderstanding of the physics and chemistry of macroscopic solidsand models developed to explain properties, such as the theory ofphonon and lattice vibrations and electronic band structure. Theauthors describe how properties depend on size in the nanometerregime and explain why these changes occur using relatively simplemodels of the physics and chemistry of the solid state.Additionally, this accessible book:

  • Provides an introductory overview of the basic principles ofsolids
  • Describes the various methods used to measure the properties ofnanosolids
  • Explains how and why properties change when reducing the sizeof solids to nano-dimensions, and what they predict when one ormore dimensions of a solid has a nano-length
  • Presents data on how various properties of solids are affectedby nanosizing and examines why these changes occur
  • Contains a chapter entirely devoted to the importance of carbonnanostructured materials and the potential applications of carbonnanostructures
The Physics and Chemistry of Nanosolids is complete with aseries of exercises at the end of each chapter for readers toenhance their understanding of the material presented, making thisan ideal textbook for students and a valuable tutorial fortechnical professionals and researchers who are interested inlearning more about this important topic.

About the Author:

Frank J. Owens, PhD, is a Senior Research Scientist of the U.S.Army's Armament Research, Development, and Engineering Center, anda Professor of Physics in the graduate school of Hunter College ofthe City University of New York.

Charles P. Poole Jr., PhD, is Professor Emeritus in theDepartment of Physics and Astronomy at the University of SouthCarolina and is a member of the USC Nanotechnology Center. Bothauthors are Fellows of the American Physical Society.

Review:

"This book would be an excellent choice for a one- or two-semester course in a materials science, chemistry, or physics course. It would also be of interest to any of our readers interested in learning about nanotechnology. It is written to provide the reader with a sound foundation for understanding the key fundamentals of nanotechnology. This book will be popular." (IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, January/February 2009)
