This book does just that by identifying needs and separating science fiction from science fact dispelling the myths and laying out realistic expectations not only in applications but timeframe as well. We identify three industries: materials, computers, and healthcare. These areas will be greatly affected by nanotechnology and advances in each will continue to feed each other. For example, future nano-scale processor fabrication methods will be used to create unique materials for healthcare applications.
Another "vision" of the authors was to "show" nanotechnology there are over 100 line art and photos illustrating the science and applications of nanotechnology distinguishing this book from other nano books. This makes it far easier for the average high school student or even baby boomer to pick up and quickly understand this emerging technology and provide them the tools to choose either a career in the sciences or invest in a nano-company stock.
I encourage those interested in this technology, whether it is for shear interest or for business ideas, to closely read this book. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
