Synopsis:
Nanotechnology is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. This covers both current work and concepts that are more advanced. Biomedical nanotechnology, bio-nanotechnology and nanomedicine are used to describe this hybrid field. The pace of new discoveries in biotechnology and health care and even the appearance of whole new fields of endeavour in recent years have made for an exciting and challenging time for pharmacists. This book examines current research in the study of nanotechnology and its role in the diagnosis and treatment of various fields of medicine.[As taken from Amazon]

Synopsis:
Now in its third edition, Fundamentals of Microfabrication and Nanotechnology continues to provide the most complete MEMS coverage available. Thoroughly revised and updated the new edition of this perennial bestseller has been expanded to three volumes, reflecting the substantial growth of this field. It includes a wealth of theoretical and practical information on nanotechnology and NEMS and offers background and comprehensive information on materials, processes, and manufacturing options.

The first volume offers a rigorous theoretical treatment of micro- and nanosciences, and includes sections on solid-state physics, quantum mechanics, crystallography, and fluidics. The second volume presents a very large set of manufacturing techniques for micro- and nanofabrication and covers different forms of lithography, material removal processes, and additive technologies. The third volume focuses on manufacturing techniques and applications of Bio-MEMS and Bio-NEMS. Illustrated in color throughout, this seminal work is a cogent instructional text, providing classroom and self-learners with worked-out examples and end-of-chapter problems. The author characterizes and defines major research areas and illustrates them with examples pulled from the most recent literature and from his own work. [As taken from Amazon]

New Title on Nanotechnology

Title: Encyclopedia of nanotechnology

Author: Elwood D. Carlson

Call number: T174.7.E56N

Availability: Click here

Synopsis:
Fifty-seven contributed articles, from an international roster of scientists, are collected in two volumes. They are arranged in no particular order, but the second volume does contain a fairly detailed index. An introductory essay offers abstracted versions of the articles, and a commentary from two U. of Rome-based scientists gives an overview of the field, including its potential for revolutionary applications in many arenas, and a very brief nod to the need for some research concerning possible environmental hazards. A sampling of topics: molecular foundations for onset wear, thermodynamic and kinetic theories of nanowire growth, lipid nanotubes as scaffolds to create structured inorganic nanomaterials, and biomedical application of nanotechnology in cancer early diagnosis.

New Title on Nanotechnology

Title: Bio-inspired nanomaterials and nanotechnology

Author: Yong Zhou

Call number: TP248.25.N35B615BN

Synopsis:

Nanoscience is a rapidly evolving field of studying and working with matter on an ultra-small scale, which was invented late in the twentieth century. Learning from bio-systems in nature, scientists began to design experiments to specifically couple biology with nanofabricated materials, devices and tools. Such bio-inspired nanoscience utilizes biological processes, shape, chemical and physical functionality of biomolecules for atom-levelly controllable fabrication of advanced materials with extreme precision. This book presents the current knowledge and understanding of bio-inspired nanoscience by a collection of eleven impressive chapters, covering several remarkable aspects. This book will also provide researchers in these fields with the newest developments in this rapidly evolving field for advancing research. [As taken from book cover]
