Dekker Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, 3rd edition
(Nanowerk News) 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." Among other accolades, this bestseller has gone on to win an Outstanding Academic Book Award from CHOICE magazine.
Continuing to cover the field as no other resource, the Third Edition describes the fundamentals and advancements of nano-materials, -structures, -devices, and -systems with a broad range of applications to assist readers in mastering the biological, engineering, physical, and technological aspects.
The new Third Edition:
Describes fundamentals and advancements of nano-materials, -structures, -devices, and -systems to assist readers in mastering biological, engineering, physical, and technological facets
