Developments in science and engineering at the nanoscale are accelerating at a breathtaking pace. Students increasingly need to have an understanding of the new tools, techniques, terminology and knowledge on which these advances are based.
This invaluable, wide-ranging and scholarly 'Handbook of Nanoscience' provides exactly that. It brings together the accumulated knowledge of the real luminaries from top nanoscience laboratories, universities and institutes, who have each contributed chapters on topics essential to the aspiring nanoscientist. These topics range from dendrimers to nanoparticle manipulation, and nanotubes to electronics modelling at the nanoscale - it is, in fact, the complete 'toolkit'.
This book is an absolute 'must' for all students of nanoscience who are serious about their subject, and supplies the perfect foundation on which to build real specialist knowledge.
