Summary

Nanotechnology makes use of materials and systems at the scale of the atom: the nano-meter (one billionth of a meter). Exploiting advances in scientific measurement at that scale and the ability to manipulate material at that scale, scientists and engineers have found ever increasing uses for nano-sized metals, polymers, and ceramics to create new functional materials, better coatings, better fluid flow, and a host of other improvements to everyday components and manufactured goods and systems. And this is only the beginning. Within 10 years, it is projected that nano-science will enable us to have hand-held supercomputers, all ceramic internal combustion engines, backpack energy systems and more. This is the first-ever, true introductory textbook on the essential fundamentals that comprise what nanoscience is all about. Covering the physics, chemistry, and engineering applications of the more widely studied types of nano-scale materials and processes, this text can be used in by a wide variety of courses and programs, from those offered in departments of physics and chemistry to those in mechanical, materials, chemical and electrical engineering. Broken into convenient modules, the instructor will find a good deal of flexibility in which specific topics to cover and to what depth. Ample end-of-chapter problems and exercises will help to reinforce the subjects learned and offer opportunities for further study. KEY FEATURES * Covers the fundamental physics and chemistry of a wide and representative class of nano-scale materials and processes, including molecular structures, macromolecular structures, and surfaces and interfaces * Explains such key concepts as self-assembly, chemical bonding, materials characterization techniques, and relevant quantum mechanics * Provides understanding of the processing and uses of thin films, nano particles, nanotubes and nanofibers, and nanocomposites * Gives students ample-end-of-chapter problems and exercises * Offers a companion web site that will host Solutions Manual (access-restricted) as well as instructive video clips, recommended further reading and additional exercises (open access)
