  • About this book

  • Provides a necessary technical overview, summarizing for researchers in all fields the applications of nanotechnology in other scientific areas
  • While many books deal with specific subjects in regards to nanotechnology, no other book bridges the gap between disciplines
  • Takes a necessary step toward cross-functionality among the sciences by allowing scientists to keep abreast of the developments and applications of nanotechnology in fields other than their own

Imaging, manipulation and analysis of nanometer scale materials structures is indispensable in understanding nanoscience and development of novel devices based on nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is considered the most important technology for future developments. While nanoscience covers many different disciplines in science, scientists of different disciplines hardly speak the same language. The success of nanotechnology hinges upon the interaction of scientists across disciplines in industry and academic institutions.

This book provides engineers and scientists working in all facets of nanoscience with a basic knowledge of the technologies and applications of nanomanipulation in different fields. Nanoworkbenches introduces and summarizes novel approaches in controlled manipulation, imaging, and chemical analysis of nanometer scaled material structures. Also detailed are the physics and technology of state-of-the-art nanomanipulators as well as applications in physics, chemistry, biology, and medicine. Four key areas covered include basic research in physical science, nanomanipulation in the semiconductor and data storage industry, nanomanipulation in biology and pharmacological technology, and nanomanipulation in medicine. By defining the applications of nanotechnology in these fields, scientists of all disciplines can understand and learn to work with the functionalities in other fields.
