Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
BIOforum Europe, Vol. 8, 5th Issue, October 2004

"... provide a good foundation for thinking about the applications of nanotechnology, and the book is well illustrated, including explanatory diagrams to assist in the understanding of scientific principles."

Sishen Xie, Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences and National Centre for Nanoscience & Technology, Beijing, small, 6/2005

"This book is intended to provide a guide to the ideas and physical concepts that allow an understanding of the changes that occur as the size scale shrinks toward the atomic scale. Our point of view is that a general introduction to the concepts of nano physics will add greatly to the ability of students and professionals whose undergraduate training has been in engineering or applied science, to contribute in the various areas of nanotechnology."
