The book reflects scientific developments in the physics of metallic compound based nanodevices presented at the NATO-sponsored Workshop on nanophysics held in Russia in the summer of 2003. The program tackles the most appealing problems. It brings together specialists and provides an opportunity for young researchers from the partner countries to interact with them and get actively involved in the most attractive and promising interdisciplinary area of contemporary condensed matter physics.
Presents forefront results in the area of nanophysics of metal-based structures
Presentations are physically transparent and simple and yet advanced
Young readers are immersed in advance contemporary nanoscience and build up their own research
