Item description for What is What in the Nanoworld: A Handbook on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology by Victor E. Borisenko & Stephano Ossicini...

The second, completely revised and enlarged edition of What is What in the Nanoworld summarizes the terms and definitions, most important phenomena, and regulations occurring in the physics, chemistry, technology, and application of nanostructures. A representative collection of fundamental terms and definitions from quantum physics and chemistry, special mathematics, organic and inorganic chemistry, solid state physics, material science and technology accompanies recommended second sources (books, reviews, websites) for an extended study of any given subject.

Each entry interprets the term or definition under consideration and briefly presents the main features of the phenomena behind it. Additional information in the form of notes ("First described in", "Recognition", "More details in") supplements the entries and gives a historical perspective of the subject with reference to further sources.

Ideal for answering questions related to unknown terms and definitions among undergraduate and PhD students studying the physics of low-dimensional structures, nanoelectronics, and nanotechnology.

More About Victor E. Borisenko & Stephano Ossicini

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Victor E. Borisenko graduated in 1973 from the Belarusian State University of Informatics and Radioelectronics (BSUIR) as an engineer in semiconductor electronics. He received his first doctorate in physics and mathematics in 1980, his second one in 1988. Since 1990, he has held positions as a professor in many universities worldwide, including the University of Salford in England, the University of Wuppertal in Germany and the University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo, Japan. He now holds a chair as professor and vice-rector of BSUIR and acts as supervisor of the Interuniversity Center of Nanoelectronics and Novel Materials. Since 1995, Professor Borisenko organizes the international conference on physics, chemistry and applications of nanostructures Nanomeeting?.
His research team focuses on fundamental electronic and optical properties of semiconducting silicides and low dimensional silicon based nanostructures, carrier transport in semiconductor/dielectric multiquantum wells and DNA, design of novel nanoelectronics and nanophotonic devices, quantum computing.
Stefano Ossicini is Full Professor of General Physics at the Faculty of Engineering (Reggio Emilia) of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (Italy) and Director of the PhD School in ?Physical and NanoSciences? of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. He also work a researcher within the CNR-National Institute for the Physics of Matter (INFM) at the INFM National Center S3 ?nanoStructures and bioSystems at Surfaces?. He graduated in Physics in 1976 at the University of Rome. From 1978 to 1982 he was active as post-doc and assistant at the Department of Theoretical Physics of the Free University inBerlin (Germany). From 1982 to 1984 researcher at the University of Calabria (Italy). 1984 he went to the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (Italy). His research activity has mainly focused on the theory of low-dimensional- and nano- systems. In recent years the central topic of his research has been, in particular, the investigation of the structural, electronic and optical properties of semiconductor nanostructures.

Victor E. Borisenko has an academic affiliation as follows - Belarusian State University, Minsk, Belarus.
