The long-awaited new edition of the highly successful textbook, which was the first to coherently present in a tutorial fashion the thread of physical concepts that lie at the heart of nanotechnology.
Expanded by around 10-15 %, a completely new section has been added on graphene, covering physical and electrical properties, synthesis and applications, as well as discussions of computer logic devices and silicon technology. There are updates and corrections to every chapter, including the references, while the modern-day examples are chosen to represent important concepts and research tools. Finally, a free solutions manual is available for lecturers.
Well illustrated, including explanatory diagrams to assist in the understanding of scientific principles, this is a self-contained text for upper-level undergraduate engineering or science students looking for a concise, easy-to-read introduction to this fascinating field of research.
