Science at the nanoscale : an introductory textbook / Chin Wee Shong, Sow Chorng Haur, Andrew TS Wee

Technology advances with each second. In the old days, we used cabled phones – big and bulky phones which could not be easily transported. Now we have smart phones which can fit in our pockets. In the future, we might be able to have phones embedded in our hands or something even more advanced. This can happen because of nanotechnology.

Science at the nanoscale covers the basics of nanotechnology including its applications. It introduces us to quantum physics and mechanics which is the basis for understanding nano-size particles. Moreover, it explains the physical and chemical characteristics of nano-size particles. So, after reading this book, one will clearly know how nano-size particles are different from normal size particles. In addition, it includes information about the tools used for nanotechnology like SEM, TEM and AFM and their working principles.

In conclusion, nanotechnology has become one of the fastest developing technologies and it is used not only in electronics but also in cosmetics, health and so on. Since nanotechnology is widely used in most fields, it will benefit not only engineering students but also students from other diplomas. This is a good book to read to understand more about nanotechnology.
