Summary

Winner of an Outstanding Academic Title Award from CHOICE Magazine

Transistors using one electron at a time. Seemingly transparent sunscreens made with titanium dioxide particles that block harmful UV rays. Nanometer-sized specks of gold that change color to red and melt at 750°C instead of 1,064°C. Nanotechnology finds the unique properties of things at the nanometer scale and then puts them to use!

Although nanotechnology is a hot topic with a wide range of fascinating applications, the search for a true introductory popular resource usually comes up cold. Closer to a popular science book than a high-level treatise, Nanotechnology: The Whole Story works from the ground up to provide a detailed yet accessible introduction to one of the world’s fastest growing fields.

Dive headlong into nanotechnology! Tackling the eight main disciplines—nanomaterials, nanomechanics, nanoelectronics, nanoscale heat transfer, nanophotonics, nanoscale fluid mechanics, nanobiotechnology, and nanomedicine—this book explains what’s different at the nanoscale, and how we exploit those differences to make useful things. You’re holding the key to an exciting and rapidly evolving field.
