Encyclopedia of Nanotechnology


The moment version of this exhaustive paintings offers a really foreign, entire and multi-disciplinary reference encompassing the various different themes surrounding the sector of nanotechnology.  every one access within the 4-volume set deals a quick, self-contained overview of the subject material, written at a degree appropriate for graduate scholars, researchers, and practitioners. the 1st version of the Encyclopedia brought loads of phrases, units and tactics concerning the multi-disciplinary box of nanotechnology. For the revised second version, latest entries were up to date to mirror advancements within the box, and greater than one hundred ten thoroughly new entries were extra to hide rising fabrics, applied sciences and components of program. significant advancements for the 2nd version contain the following:

  • Expanded part on nanostructures together with new chapters on constructions, features and functions of graphene and graphene oxidesNew entries on formation of nanoceramics and diamond through spark plasma sintering
  • New chapters at the synthesis and use of nanoparticles and practical nanomaterials in biomedical applications
  • Significantly elevated part on molecular modeling and simulation
  • Several new entries on MEMS and NEMS applied sciences together with graphene and CNT NEMS
  • Expanded insurance of microfluidics and nanofluidics, and purposes of nanotechnology to biomedicine and biomedical imaging
  • Further fabric on environmental, wellbeing and fitness and questions of safety referring to nanomaterials
  • Expanded part on nanomanufacturing, now together with a number of entries on self-assembly

The different overseas authorship of the paintings is a mirrored image of the worldwide study attempt during this box, with contributions from major educational researchers and business specialists alike.
