This topic could not be hotter, the new technology drive of the 21st century paired with existing, multibillion dollar markets and fundings. With Nanotechnology everywhere of great importance e.g. biology, medicine, pharmaceuticals, chemistry, materials science and engineering, this authoritative reference addresses IT applications of nanotechnology, specifically computer memory and how the technology can be miniaturised.

The entire reference set of 9 volumes gives an excellent, in-depth overview of everything you need to know about nanotechnology and/or nanoscience. Each volume is dedicated to a specific topic which is covered in detail by experts from that particular field.
