Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Reprints ten articles published in Scientific America during 2000 and 2001 that explore the possibilities offered by the next generation of miniaturized technologies. The contributors discuss obstacles to fully functioning nanomachines, applications for drug delivery and genetic testing, and the creation of nanometer-scale electronic components from organic molecules.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Taken from the Greek, nano means 'one billionth part of' a whole; or very, very small. Nanotechnology is the next step after miniaturization. This book explores the cutting edge of a new technology that will find usage in almost every single aspect of modern society.
