Nanotechnology Understanding Small Systems, Second Edition Ben Rogers Reno, Nevada, USA

Sumita Pennathur University of California, Santa Barbara, USA

Jesse Adams Nevada Nano, Inc., Reno, USA

"Ever since Richard Feynman gave his classic talk in 1959, ‘There Is Plenty of Room at the Bottom,’ there has been a steadily increasing buzz in manipulating matter at the atomic scale--nanotechnology. This updated work (First ed., 2008) takes the revolutionary concepts and techniques that have traditionally been fodder for graduate study and makes them accessible for all. Covering subjects ranging from materials science to mechanics and biotechnology to photonics, [the authors] deftly introduce the reader to each topic and quickly explain why it is important on the nanoscale. An exciting feature is the ‘back-of-theenvelope’ examples, where the reader is walked through ‘quick and dirty’ calculations to illustrate and understand (mathematically) the complex concepts discussed. The end of each chapter includes traditional problem sets and short answer questions to test understanding. While not a comprehensive text in any specific area of nanoscale science or engineering, this outstanding introduction to the broad field of nanotechnology provides a solid foundation for further study.” “Summing Up: Highly recommended … " —N. M Fahrenkopf, University at Albany, in CHOICE, 2011

Praise for the First Edition: "… It is written in an easily understandable manner, not requiring from the reader deep knowledge in the related topics of physics and mathematics before reading this book. It uncovers the most important things about nanotechnology explained in a very illustrative manner with many simple examples, figures, and ‘back-of-the-envelope’ calculations, so that the reader can get a good feeling for the numbers of nanotechnology." —Zentralblatt MATH, 1185

This book works from the ground up to provide a detailed yet accessible introduction to one of the world’s fastest growing fields, understandable to members of a variety of disciplines. It contains a


clear presentation of real-world examples and original illustrations, as well as hundreds of homework problems of varying types, including multiple choice, true-false, in-depth calculation, and essay (with complete solutions manual). This book uses a systems-based approach that illustrates how underlying areas of nano are assembled to create systems with unique functions and characteristics, comparing nanoscale and macroscale systems to reveal the complex and fundamental differences between phenomena at different scales and uncover the specific challenges and opportunities of nano. Features: • Comprehensive glossary serves as a nanotech dictionary, helping students review concepts and book material as well as understand other more complex texts • Suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter give readers a portal into deeper study of nanotech topics • Numerous updates and improvements to the text and figures, based on user feedback • Many simple examples, figures, and ‘back-ofthe-envelope’ calculations, so that the reader can get a good feeling for the numbers of nanotechnology Solutions manual available with qualifying course adoption

Nano Materials

Nanoscale Physics for Materials Science Takaaki Tsurumi, Hiroyuki Hirayama, Martin Vachax, and Tomoyasu Taniyama Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan

Although there are many books available on the preparation, properties, and characterization of nanomaterials, few provide an interdisciplinary account of the physical phenomena that govern the novel properties of nanomaterials. Addressing this shortfall, Nanoscale Physics for Materials Science covers fundamental cross-disciplinary concepts in materials science and engineering. It presents a comprehensive description of the physical phenomena and changes that can be expected when macroscopically sized materials are reduced to the nanometer level. The text is divided according to physical phenomena and interactions. After reviewing the necessary theoretical background, the authors address the electrical, optical, and magnetic properties as functions of size and distance. They discuss the energy spectrum, the charging effect, tunneling phenomena, electronically induced stable nanostructures, absorption and scattering, electromagnetic interactions, magnetism, ferromagnetic domain-wall-related phenomena, and spin transport in magnetic nanostructures. Problem sets are included at the end of each chapter. Providing an excellent treatment of physical phenomena not covered in similar books, this text explores the electrical, optical, and magnetic properties of materials at the nanoscale level. It delves into the dramatic physical changes that occur on scales where the quantum nature of objects starts dominating their properties.


• Links physical phenomena with recent scientific and technological developments • Takes a unified approach to materials science, rather than focusing on inorganic, organic, semiconductor, ceramic, and metallurgical materials separately • Presents an overview of quantum mechanics and the band structure of solids • Follows the changes in physical properties from macroscale to atomic levels • Describes the physical phenomena occurring at the nanoscale • Includes homework problems at the end of each chapter Solutions manual available upon qualifying course adoption

Nano Materials Optics of Nanomaterials Vladimir I. Gavrilenko Norfolk State University, Virginia, USA

“Vladimir Gavrilenko has developed an extremely useful book for scientists who are interested in the rapidly developing field of nanomaterials with emphasis on the optical properties of these materials. Of particular importance is that the book covers many different kinds of optical properties (linear and nonlinear, coherent and incoherent), and many different kinds of materials (carbon and silicon-based, metals, semiconductors, and biological nanomaterials). For each topic there is a careful discussion of fundamental theory as well as specific applications that have proven important to the development of the field. There are also extensive citations to recent papers.” —Prof. George C. Schatz, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, USA

While the chemistry, physics, and optical properties of simple atoms and molecules are quite well understood, this book demonstrates that there is much to be learned about the optics of nanomaterials. Through comparative analysis of the sizedependent optical response from nanomaterials, it is shown that although strides have been made in computational chemistry and physics, bridging length scales from nano to macro remains a major challenge. Organic, molecular, polymer, and biological systems are shown to be potentially useful models for assembly. Our progress in understanding the optical properties of biological nanomaterials is an important driving force for a variety of applications.
