Encyclopedia of Nanotechnology


The moment version of this exhaustive paintings presents a certainly overseas, complete and multi-disciplinary reference encompassing the numerous different themes surrounding the sector of nanotechnology.  every one access within the 4-volume set deals a brief, self-contained overview of the subject material, written at a degree compatible for graduate scholars, researchers, and practitioners. the 1st variation of the Encyclopedia brought a great number of phrases, units and procedures concerning the multi-disciplinary box of nanotechnology. For the revised 2d variation, present entries were up-to-date to mirror advancements within the box, and greater than a hundred and ten thoroughly new entries were further to hide rising fabrics, applied sciences and parts of software. significant advancements for the 2nd version comprise 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 via spark plasma sintering
  • New chapters at the synthesis and use of nanoparticles and useful nanomaterials in biomedical applications
  • Significantly extended 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 functions of nanotechnology to biomedicine and biomedical imaging
  • Further fabric on environmental, future health and issues of safety pertaining to nanomaterials
  • Expanded part on nanomanufacturing, now together with a number of entries on self-assembly

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