Item description for Springer Handbook of Nanotechnology by Bharat Bhushan...
Since 2004 the Springer Handbook of Nanotechnology has established itself as the definitive reference in the nanoscience and nanotechnology area. It integrates the knowledge from nanofabrication, nanodevices, nanomechanics, Nanotribology, materials science, and reliability engineering in just one volume. Beside the presentation of nanostructures, micro/nanofabrication, and micro/nanodevices, special emphasis is on scanning probe microscopy, nanotribology and nanomechanics, molecularly thick films, industrial applications and microdevice reliability, and on social aspects. In its 2nd edition, the book grew from 6 to 8 parts and from 38 to 58 chapters. More information is added to such fields as bionanotechnology, nanorobotics, and MEMS/NEMS reliability. The book is organized by an experienced editor with a universal knowledge and written by an international team of over 150 distinguished experts. It addresses mechanical and electrical engineers, materials scientists, physicists and chemists who work either in the nano area or in a field that is or will be influenced by this new key technology.
From the reviews of the first edition:
"The strong point is its focus on many of the practical aspects of nanotechnology... Anyone working in or learning about the field of nanotechnology would find this and excellent working handbook." IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine
"Outstandingly succeeds in its aim... It really is a magnificent volume and every scientific library and nanotechnology group should have a copy." Materials World
"The integrity and authoritativeness... is guaranteed by an experienced editor and an international team of authors which have well summarized in their chapters information on fundamentals and applications." Polymer News

nice book Feb 12, 2006
Definitely worthwhile to read. Thorough. On an unrelated note, if u need solved exams in nanotech, email: email@example.com
covers the field, in 2004 Dec 18, 2004
Bhushan has amassed an authoritative handbook of the status of nanotechnology in 2004. The book makes clear that the field is delivering serious scientific and engineering results. The authors are the recognised experts in their fields. Which are as diverse as MEMS, tribology and Atomic Force Microscopy.
Although, much work is still pure research. While some novel devices are described, the optimistic projections of mass scale industrial applications may still have to wait for a few more years.
Very useful to researchers across many disciplines.
