Fundamentals and Applications of Nanomaterialsby Zhen Guo
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Guo (a staff technologist at the Intel Corporation) and Tan (U. of Nebraska) introduce the field of nanomaterials to senior undergraduate and graduate students in materials science and related engineering fields. They cover fundamentals, including quantum mechanics and atomic structures, bonding and band structures for nanomaterials, surface science, and nanomaterials characterization. They then introduce nanofabrications, discussing thin film deposition, nanolithography, and synthesis of nanoparticles and their self-assembly. Finally, they examine nanomaterials properties and applications in chapters on nanoelectronic materials, nano biomaterials, and nanostructural materials. Only a college level understanding of math, physics, and chemistry is required. Distributed in North America by The David Brown Book Co. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
