A survey of the machinery and science of the nanometer scale. Its twenty-two contributing authors, drawn from many different disciplines including atomic physics, microelectronics, polymer chemistry, and biophysics, delineate the course of current research and articulate a vision for the development of the nanometer frontiers in electronics, mechanics, chemistry, magnetics, materials, and biology. They reveal a world thirty years hence where motors are smaller than the diameter of a human hair; where single-celled organisms are programmed to fabricate materials with nanometer precision; where single atoms are used for computation, and where quantum chaos is the norm. Aimed at the level of at least a junior- or senior- level undergraduate in biology, chemistry, physics, or engineering.
This volume is a survey of the machinery and science of the nanometer scale. Written by world-renowned scientists and engineers from a variety of disciplines, it delineates the course of current research and articulates a vision for the development of the nanometer frontiers in electronics, mechanics, chemistry, magnetics, materials, and biology.
