About this book

Since 2004 and with the 2nd edition in 2006, the Springer Handbook of Nanotechnology has established itself as the definitive reference in the nanoscience and nanotechnology area. It integrates the knowledge from nanofabrication, nanodevices, nanomechanics, Nanotribology, materials science, and reliability engineering in just one volume. Beside the presentation of nanostructures, micro/nanofabrication, and micro/nanodevices, special emphasis is on scanning probe microscopy, nanotribology and nanomechanics, molecularly thick films, industrial applications and microdevice reliability, and on social aspects. In its 3rd edition, the book grew from 8 to 9 parts now including a part with chapters on biomimetics. More information is added to such fields as bionanotechnology, nanorobotics, and (bio)MEMS/NEMS, bio/nanotribology and bio/nanomechanics. The book is organized by an experienced editor with a universal knowledge and written by an international team of over 150 distinguished experts. It addresses mechanical and electrical engineers, materials scientists, physicists and chemists who work either in the nano area or in a field that is or will be influenced by this new key technology. From the reviews "The strong point is its focus on many of the practical aspects of nanotechnology... Anyone working in or learning about the field of nanotechnology would find this and excellent working handbook." IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine "Outstandingly succeeds in its aim … . It really is a magnificent volume and every scientific library and nanotechnology group should have a copy." Materials World "The integrity and authoritativeness… is guaranteed by an experienced editor and an international team of authors which have well summarized in their chapters information on fundamentals and applications." Polymer News Key Topics Nanostructures and Nanomaterials Micro/Nanofabrication NEMS /MEMS − BioNEMS/BioMEMS Micro/Nanodevice Reliability Scanning Probe and Force Microscopies Nanotribology and Nanorheology Nanorobotics Biomimetics Industrial Applications Social and Ethical Aspects Features Covers basic concepts, materials, properties, and fabrication. Contains over 1500 two-color illustrations. Numerous comprehensive tables. Features exhaustive references to approved data. DVD contains chapters of the second edition.
