What is What in the Nanoworld: A Handbook on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology by Victor E. Borisenko, Stefano Ossicini

The third, partly revised and enlarged edition of this introductory reference summarizes the terms and definitions, most important phenomena, and regulations occurring in the physics, chemistry, technology, and application of nanostructures. A representative collection of fundamental terms and definitions from quantum physics and chemistry, special mathematics, organic and inorganic chemistry, solid state physics, material science and technology accompanies recommended secondary sources for an extended study of any given subject.
Each of the more than 2,200 entries, from a few sentences to a page in length, interprets the term or definition in question and briefly presents the main features of the phenomena behind it. Additional information in the form of notes ("First described in", "Recognition", "More details in") supplements the entries and gives a historical perspective of the subject with reference to further sources.
Ideal for answering questions related to unknown terms and definitions among undergraduate and PhD students studying the physics of low-dimensional structures, nanoelectronics, and nanotechnology.

About the Author

Victor E. Borisenko graduated in 1973 from the Belarusian State University of Informatics and Radioelectronics (BSUIR) as an engineer in semiconductor electronics. After gaining doctorates in physics and mathematics, he accepted a post as professor at BSUIR in 1990. He currently holds a chair at the Department of Micro- and Nanoelectronics and supervises the Center of NanoeIectronics and Novel Materials at BSUIR. His research team focuses on fundamental electronic and optical properties of semiconducting oxides and other compounds, low dimensional silicon, and germanium nanostructures. Professor Borisenko has been organizing international conferences on physics, chemistry and applications of nanostructures since 1995.

Stefano Ossicini graduated in physics from the University of Rome. From 1978 to 1982 he worked as a post-doc and an assistant at the Free University of Berlin, Germany, and afterwards as a researcher at the University of Calabria, Italy, until 1984, when he accepted a post at the University of Modena. Professor Ossicini is Director of the Research Center "En&Tech? for green energies at the University of Modena and Reggie Emilia, and is an associate with the CNR-Istituto Nanoscienze S3. While his research activities have always been focused on the theory of low-dimensional and nano-systems, he now concentrates on investigating the structural and optoelectronic properties of nanostructures.
