Introduction to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

Gabor L. Hornyak, H.F. Tibbals, Joydeep Dutta, John J. Moore
December 22, 2008

The maturation of nanotechnology has revealed it to be a unique and distinct discipline rather than a specialization within a larger field. Its textbook cannot afford to be a chemistry, physics, or engineering text focused on nano. It must be an integrated, multidisciplinary, and specifically nano...
