A primary text for undergraduate nanotechnology courses, this book is designed for students who lack a cross-disciplinary background and knowledge of micro- and nano-technology. Clearly and concisely written, it contains many examples, questions, and problems divided into three hierarchical learning skills: understanding, analyzing, and evaluating the concepts. The author attempts to break down the boundaries between biology, chemistry, physics, engineering and ethics. He accomplishes this by co-mingling the vocabulary and concepts of these disciplines around bio-applications. Copiously illustrated, this new text leans heavily towards biological and biomedical applications and includes a comprehensive chapter on ethics.
