  • Provides broad, in-depth coverage of the physics of nanoscale materials and applications
  • Traces the historical development of nanoscience
  • Includes introductions in each chapter—useful to nonspecialists and students
  • Contains chapters extensively peer reviewed by senior scientists in nanophysics and related areas of nanoscience
  • Covers basic principles, methods, and materials, including clusters, fullerenes, nanoparticles, quantum dots, nanotubes, and nanowires
  • Describes functional nanomaterials, nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, nanomedicine, and nanorobotics
  • Promotes new ideas for future fundamental research


Breakthroughs in nanotechnology require a firm grounding in the principles of nanophysics. Providing the framework to achieve these advances, Handbook of Nanophysics is the first comprehensive reference to cover both fundamental and applied aspects of physics at the nanoscale. Pioneering scientists from preeminent academic institutions, R&D companies, and research laboratories pave the way for new innovations in nanotechnology.

Explore the frontiers of nanoscience

This seven-volume set offers a sound introduction to established fundamentals in the field as well as a summary of the most significant developments in research. After discussing the theoretical principles and measurements of nanoscale systems, the organization of the set generally follows the historical development of nanoscience. Each peer-reviewed chapter presents a didactic treatment of the physics underlying the nanoscale materials and applications along with detailed experimental results. State-of-the-art scientific content is enriched with fundamental equations and illustrations, some in color.

State-of-the-art research collected in one source

Nanophysics brings together multiple disciplines to determine the structural, electronic, optical, and thermal behavior of nanomaterials; electrical and thermal conductivity; the forces between nanoscale objects; and the transition between classical and quantum behavior. Facilitating communication across many disciplines, this landmark publication encourages scientists with disparate interests to collaborate on interdisciplinary projects and incorporate the theory and methodology of other areas into their work.

Two of the contributors, as well as the editor of this work, are faculty members at the University of Hawaii, which cited the Handbook in a recent article.
