An Introduction to Nanotechnology: The New Science of Small
What we've discovered at the nanoscale has sparked an ever-expanding technological revolution - one that will fast become a game-changer in many fields, including engineering, communications, and medicine. Explore this exciting new frontier with these 24 accessible lectures that provide an in-depth explanation of nanotechnology and how it is possible to work in a domain that is nine orders of magnitude smaller than humans - comparable to the difference in scale between you and the sun. Start with a series of lectures that orient you to the nanoscale and then cover some of the most significant developments in electronics that have made use of nanotechnology in computers, communications, and imaging. Then, enjoy a sequence of lectures on the biological applications of nanotechnology, especially to medicine. These two professors combine for a lecture on their respective research teams, giving a fascinating glimpse of the collaboration between scientists and engineers as they probe and create the nanoworld, followed by a look at the beautiful and distinctive shapes revealed at the nanoscale, as well as a sustained investigation of developments that are transforming the way we produce, store, and use energy. The lectures conclude with each professor giving a lecture on more futuristic examples of nanotechnology, from biologically based nanorobots to smart dust and invisibility cloaks. Along the way, youÍll witness the startling power of nanotechnology in once-fantastical but now-possible tools, products, and services such as smartphones, nano-packaged drugs, and gold nanoparticles. These and countless other developments, youÍll learn, are made possible by new techniques that operate at an inconceivably tiny scale.
