Explores innovations in nanostructured materials, nanodevices, and system architectures Describes the properties, performance, and engineering of materials that have controllable features on the nanometer scale Presents new simulation tools and computational methods Discusses the construction, integration, and application of tools for the measurement and imaging of biological materials Includes fundamental principles, theories, and methodologies that impact nanosystem design
With its original publication, the Dekker Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
immediately became the reference against which all other nano references are measured. Noting that the encyclopedia was being assembled by leading authorities at an early stage in the field’s development, Sir Harry Kroto, 1996 Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry, rightfully predicted that the encyclopedia would bring together key advances in a “coherently organized framework.” Continuing to cover the field as no other resource, the six-volume second edition crosses disciplines to examine fundamental nano principles, theories, and methodologies, as well as the latest information on nano-relevant properties. It also covers advances in nanoscale engineering, newly developed simulation tools, and emerging computational methods.
Among other accolades, this million-dollar bestseller has gone on to win an Outstanding Academic Book Award from CHOICE magazine.
