Book Description

May 15 2008 1420048058 978-1420048056 1

Tomorrow’s nanoscientist will have a truly interdisciplinary and nano-centric education, rather than, for example, a degree in chemistry with a specialization in nanoscience. For this to happen, the field needs a truly focused and dedicated textbook. This full-color masterwork is such a textbook. It introduces the nanoscale along with the societal impacts of nanoscience, then presents an overview of characterization and fabrication methods. The authors systematically discuss the chemistry, physics, and biology aspects of nanoscience, providing a complete picture of the challenges, opportunities, and inspirations posed by each facet before giving a brief glimpse at nanoscience in action: nanotechnology.

This book is written to provide a companion volume to Fundamentals of Nanotechnology. The two companion volumes are also available bound together in the single volume, Introduction to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

Qualifying instructors who purchase either of these volumes (or the combined set) are given online access to a wealth of instructional materials. These include detailed lecture notes, review summaries, slides, exercises, and more. The authors provide enough material for both one- and two-semester courses.

Review

"The figures are engaging and instructive, and the chapter reference lists are outstanding, containing the most up-to-date and important literature . . . This volume exposes students to the complete scope of nanoscience, allowing them to bring their disciplinary knowledge to the table and to understand the science, language, and techniques used in allied fields so they can develop a big picture interdisciplinary view, something needed to effectively engage and make major new contributions in this revolutionary field. Summing Up: Highly recommended."

– B. Ransom, formerly, University of California- San Diego, in Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries, November 2008, Vol. 46, No. 3

". . . extremely easy reading for students . . . In terms of the ease of usage for the teacher, it is refreshing to see a textbook that is written from a biomedical perspective in an area customarily frequented by material scientists and physicists and their customary dry writing. The authors do a very good job of contextualising the field and the reading is made ever more pleasant by the use of magnificent figures of superlative clarity . . . This book would certainly be used by me personally . . ."

– Dipak Kumar Sarker, School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences, University of Brighton, in Reviews, Dec 2008, Vol. 9, No. 17, Issue 2

3.0 out of 5 stars I didn't read this book too far Jan. 20 2013

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'll be honest that I dropped the class after a few month's, so my review won't be of much help. My issue was that the book didn't relate a lot of mathematics in nanoscience to the point I went to in it, so I didn't find much use in it.

I used this book for an entry level nanoscience class and the book does a good job introducing the reader to nanoscience and progressing his or her knowledge to a more advanced level.
