From the Back Cover
A fascinating journey through the microscopic world of nanotechnology and its macroscopic implications
Complex mechanical devices with feature sizes on the molecular scale and with all the power of today's supercomputers; diamond and other ultrastrong building materials—and all of this accessible through low-cost automated molecular manufacturing. We've all read about the vast potential of nanotechnology. Some theorists have hailed it as the most important technological breakthrough since steam power. But how far have we really come to realizing any of that potential? And how have recent developments in the field begun to shape the world of the twenty-first century?
Now this discussion-oriented book takes you to the front lines of nanotechnology theory and practice to provide answers to these and other questions. Featuring contributions from a number of international top names in the field, it offers a provocative look into a future shaped by nanotechnological applications and also provides an overview of the enabling technologies that are in current use in a variety of industries and which will be important in attaining this breakthrough technology.
An excellent introduction to nanotechnology for novices
- An authoritative, up-to-date survey of progress in the field for those following the field
- Applications of nanotechnology in computers, materials science, biochemistry, space technology, and other fields
- State-of-the-art research and development in the United States and Japan
- Discussion of the funding situation, technology policy, and hypertext as a facilitating system for social problem solving and public debate
