Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews:

"This handbook is more like an applications-oriented encyclopedia of the current state of the art in nanotechnology[…] the strong point is its focus on many of the practical aspects of nanotechnology. There are many illustrations, graphs, photographs, and drawing that accompany the text to clearly convey the information, and there is a very extensive reference listing[…] Anyone working in or learning about the field of nanotechnology would find this and excellent working handbook." (EEE Electrical Insulation Magazine)

"There has been a need for a 'generally accessible how-to guide to nanotechnology for specialists and nonspecialists' Now there is a bulky volume with he clear amibition to fulfil this need. With more than 1200 pages, 972 illustrations, 90 authors and 38 chapters, and an accompanying CD containing the full searchable text, it looks like a book matching the breadth and importance of the subject matter." (Chemistry and Industry)

"The Handbook of Nanotechnology outstandingly succeeds in its aim… It will be extremely useful to graduate researchers and scientists wishin to expand their knowledge. … All sections are well written and well laid out with excellent references and illustrations – both clear line diagrams and micrographs… It really is a magnificent volume and every scientific library and nanotechnology group should have a copy." (Materials World)

"The 38 essays in this massive volume describe a wide range of techniques used in fabricating nanometer-scale materials and machines. Most of the authors provide brief sketches of the historical background behind, or physical-chemical principles underlying, the fabrication techniques. While the authors allude to numerous practical applications, the principal focus is on the techniques themselves: physical and chemical processes for designing materials and machines with specific properties and functions. Despite the many authors and fields of science and engineering covered, the volume does appear as a unit. The writing is generally clear and precise, and the numerous grayscale illustrations and photographs are of excellent quality and assist visualization of the techniques described. A CD-ROM includes all of the printed matter as pdf files …
This book, and associated CD-ROM, should be on every nanotechnology researcher’s shelf. It is possibly the most comprehensive text available on aspects of nanophysics and nano-fabrication and as such it will be an invaluable reference text… The material and diagrams within the book are factual and accurate, and are presented with significant emphasis on real, practical examples of nanotechnology. .. Nanotechnology is a very diverse area, covering physical, chemical, biological and engineering aspects, and the range of authors who have contributed to this book reflect this diversity…Its major strengths over other published literature are in the area of physics and engineering, and there are truly excellent sections on fabrication and microscopic techniques…Overall, l would buy this book, and recommend it to my colleagues and research students. It is well written, and will be a significant resource for teaching and research." (Chemistry in Australia)

"Professor Bhushan has harnessed his own knowledge and experience, gained in several industries and universities, and has assembled about 100 internationally recognized authors from three continents to write more than 40 chapters. The authors come from both academia and industry... [This book] is a timely addition to the literature on nanotechnology , which I anticipate will stimulate further interest in this important new field and serve as an invaluable resource to members of the international scientific and industrial community." (Neal Lane, University Professor, Rice University - Former Special Assistant to President Clinton and Director of the NSF)

"The integrity and authoritativeness of information provided in the Handbook of Nanotechnology is guaranteed by an experienced editor and an international team of authors which have well summarized in their chapters information on fundamentals and applications of Nanotechnology." (Polymer News)

"The strong point of this book is its focus on many of the practical aspects of nanotechnology. There are many illustrations, graphs, photographs, and drawings that accompany the text to clearly convey the information, and there is a very extensive reference listing at the end of each chapter, providing enough detail … about the latest state of the art in nanotechnology. … Anyone working in or learning about the field of nanotechnology would find this an excellent working handbook." (IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, 21:3, May/June 2005)

"The Handbook of Nanotechnology outstandingly succeeds in its aim to be a comprehensive reference work. … It will be extremely useful for graduate researchers and scientists wishing to expand their knowledge. … All sections are well written and well laid out with excellent references and illustrations … . it’s relatively cheap for a reference work of this size. It really is a magnificent volume and every scientific library and nanotechnology research group should have a copy." (Stephen Kukureka Fimmm, Materials World, 13:2, February, 2005)

"It is a comprehensive book intended to serve both as a textbook for university courses as well as a reference for researchers. … timely addition to the literature on nanotechnology, which will … serve as an invaluable resource to members of the international scientific and industrial community. … an excellent text for one or two semester graduate courses in nanotechnology, in mechanical engineering, materials sciences, applied physics, or applied chemistry. … user friendly and enjoyable to read." (K. Fuchs, Optik, 115:9, 2004)

"The authors have organized and synthesized practical information on the fundamentals and applications of nanotechnology. The handbook is a resource for mechanical and electrical engineers, materials scientists, physicists and chemists who work either in the nanotechnology area or in a field influenced by this new key technology. A detailed index and fully searchable CD-ROM guarantee quick access to data." (Process, 7:4, 2004)

"This book, and associated CD-ROM, should be on every nanotechnology researcher’s shelf. … the most comprehensive text available on aspects of nanophysics and nano-fabrication and … an invaluable reference text. … The material and diagrams within the book are factual and accurate … . I would buy this book, and recommend it to my colleagues and research students. It is well written, and will be a significant resource for teaching and research." (Dr. Kay Latham, Chemistry in Australia, July, 2004)

"This superb Handbook is an invaluable reference text and should be on every nanoscientist’s bookshelf. In fact, it is one of the most comprehensive texts currently available on the topic. ... The contents and figures … are accurate, user-friendly and presented with significant emphasis on real, practical examples of nanoscience and nanotechnology. … It is a timely addition to the literature on nanosciences, and will undoubtedly serve as a catalyst to further stimulate interest in this rapidly growing field." (Raj Bawa, Nanotechnology Law & Business, 1:3, 2004)

"The book is organized by an experienced editor with a universal knowledge and written by an international team of distinguished experts … . It addresses mechanical and electrical engineers, materials scientists, physicists and chemists who work either in the nano area or in a field that is or will be influenced by this new key technology." (Bücherliste, No. 1, February, 2004)

From the Back Cover

Since 2004 the Springer Handbook of Nanotechnology has established itself as the definitive reference in the Nanoscience field.  It integrates the knowledge from nanofabrication, nanomechanics, materials science, and reliability engineering in just one volume. Reflecting further developments, the new edition has grown from six to eight parts and from 38 to 58 chapters. Existing chapters have been thoroughly updated and new material has been added to cover developing fields such as bionanotechnology, nanorobotics, and NEMS/MEMS reliability. This classic reference book addresses mechanical and electrical engineers, materials scientists, physicists and chemists who work either in the nano area or in a field that is or will be influenced by this new key technology.
