Nanotechnology in a Nutshell: From Simple to Complex Systems by Christian Ngô

By Christian Ngô

A new high-level ebook for execs from Atlantis Press supplying an outline of nanotechnologies now and their functions in a wide number of fields, together with details and conversation applied sciences, environmental sciences and engineering, societal lifestyles, and drugs, with provision of personalized treatments.

The e-book exhibits the place nanotechnology is now - a desirable time while the technological know-how is transitioning into complicated platforms with effect on new items. current and destiny advancements are addressed, in addition to a bigger variety of new business and examine possibilities deriving from this area. an outline for execs, researchers and policy-makers of this very quickly increasing box. short chapters and color figures with a contained total size make the e-book appealing at an enticing rate - a needs to for each professional’s shelf.

Mihail C. Roco, nationwide technology starting place and nationwide Nanotechnology Initiative, wrote the preface underlying the significance and weight of the current e-book to this intriguing and epoch-awakening box of study and applications:

“Nanotechnology is easily famous as a technological know-how and know-how megatrend for the start of the twenty first century. This publication goals to teach the place nanotechnology is now - transitioning to advanced structures and essentially new items - and communicates the societal promise of nanotechnology to experts and the general public. such a lot of what has already made it into is within the kind of “First iteration” items, passive nanostructures with regular behaviour. Many businesses have “Second iteration” items, energetic nanostructures with altering behaviour in the course of use, and embryonic “Third iteration” items, together with three-dimensional nanosystems. suggestions for “Fourth new release” items, together with heterogeneous molecular nanosystems, are just in research.”
