Overview

With the second edition of his highly successful textbook 'Nanophysics and Nanotechnology', the author has once more provided a unique, self-contained introduction to the physical concepts, techniques and applications of nanoscale systems by covering its entire spectrum from the latest examples right up to single-electron and molecular electronics. The book is basically at the level of an upper level undergraduate engineering or science student. New sections have been added on the use of DNA as an organizing stratagem in self-assembly, silicon nanowires and the latest applications of carbon nanotubes. Two new chapters have been added including pedagogy and the latest results in magnetoelectronics, spintronics, superconducting devices, and silicon based quantum computing. Additional problems have been provided.
